Carnival Ride Snaps in Half, Killing 2

Video taken at a carnival in India shows a pendulum-style amusement ride snapping in half and crashing to the ground, killing two and injuring 27.

The video initially appears to show no obvious problems but the main shaft then suddenly snaps crashing into the frame and plunging to the ground.

“Twenty-nine people were brought to the hospital, out of whom two died,” Ahmedabad mayor Bijal Patel said. All of the injured are believed to be adults.

At least 14 of the injured are in critical condition, according to the Ahmedabad Mirror, which named the two dead as Manali Rajwadi, 24, and Mohammad Javed, 22. Authorities say a full forensic inquiry will try to find the cause of the fatal crash.
