The Terrifying, Tragic Moment An Amusement Park Ride Goes Horribly Wrong

The incident comes just weeks after a free-fall ride at another theme park in IN broke and plunged 10 feet to the ground, injuring 12 people, Fox News reported. The incident took place yesterday evening.

Although officials confirmed that the attraction's main shaft had malfunctioned, they said they were unsure if the crash was also the result of the welded section at the ride's top giving way or if the ride's nuts and bolts had already been loose.

Videos emerged on social media showing the ride swing back and forward before the huge metal arm breaks off, with the ride crashing to the ground.

The "Discovery" ride has 32 seats.

At least two visitors have died and more then 20 injured have been hospitalized after the ride crashed at an amusement park in Kankaria Lake Front.

Nehra added: "Teams are already on the spot to investigate the exact cause of this accident".
