A nine-year-old child and eight adults have been injured after a fairground ride crashed on top of them in China.
Horrifying footage shows the moment the ride collapsed, trapping dozens of screaming people underneath. One person was seriously injured.
The victims were enjoying the first night of the Liu Chengcun Wangya temple fair in China’s Xihe county on March 9 when the ride malfunctioned seconds into starting.
Shocked witnesses told Beijing Youth Daily they heard a sudden “bang” then saw an iron column in the middle of the ride snap and send sparks flying.
