Police are questioning the owner of an amusement ride that ‘malfunctioned’ in Lopburi province resulting in the injury of children. The incident took place at a carnival named “Lopburi Winter” on November 30 around 10.30pm.

 

Children were enjoying the ride when suddenly a safety bar, holding the children in place, appears to let go and the children bounced off while the machine was still spinning.

 

The machine was operating at full speed when the incident happened. When the safety bar sprung open children were flung off, onto the ground, with some falling over the safety fence surrounding the ride. Waiting parents and others waiting in line for the ride all screamed before rushing in to help the kids.

 

 

When the police arrived they spoke to 26 years old Sornchai, the staff member controlling the ride at the time of the incident. Sornchai was unable to tell police what caused the safety lock to malfunction while the ride was going. Officials inspected the area and gathered evidence before visiting the injured children sent to the nearby Phra Narai Maharat Hospital.

 

The injured children were all aged between 12-15 years. Officials spoke with the parents to collect their statements about the incident. Police are looking to prosecute the owners of the ride, and possibly the ride-controller at the time of the incident.
