Giant Carnival Wheel In India Crashes In The Middle Of A Ride; 1 Dead [Video]

An accident on a revolving merry-go-round called the disco dancer in an Indian amusement park has left one person dead and at least seven injured. A camera caught the giant wheel abruptly toppling down from a height of 15 feet in the middle of a ride.

The disco dancer was one of the top rides at the Kishkinta amusement park in Chennai, but had been damaged during the recent floods in the city. The 20-odd people on the giant wheel at the time of the accident were workers who had been asked to take the ride as part on a trial run.

Many of them said that they were reluctant to get on the ride, but were forced to go. The video shows the ride crashing after completing a couple of rounds. Local police has arrested the owner and manager of the amusement park on charges of criminal negligence.
