Shocking moment spinning fairground ride crashes 50ft to the ground injuring 50 people including kids | The Sun

THIS is the shocking moment a spinning fairground ride plunged to the ground leaving 50 people injured.

Thrillseekers can be heard screaming as they plummet 50ft to the platform when the ride malfunctioned.

The horror accident happened at the Dussehra fairground in Mohali, India on Sunday.

A total of 50 people including children are believed to have been injured in the incident and taken to the hospital.

In a video shared on social media, the spinning wheel can be seen rotating before slightly tilting to one side and crashing onto the platform.

Those strapped into the attraction are flung about, with one person's body forcefully swinging due to the impact as others are alleged to have come loose from their seats.

An investigation is underway.

It comes as multiple people were left injured when a chair swing carousel collapsed at a funfair in Palma Campania, Italy.
