A terrifying moment was caught on camera when a pendulum theme park ride snapped in two and plunged to the ground, killing two people.
The ride at the Balvatika amusement park in Ahmedabad in Gujarat, India, was carrying dozens of people on Sunday afternoon when the metal arm broke off and plummeted to the ground.
Onlookers rushed to help people trapped in their seats, and footage shared by SWNS shows the chaos as riders try to break free.
Two people were killed instantly, according to SWNS, and at least 29 others were injured and rushed to hospital.
"The injured are still being treated because the surgeons were pressed into action with the immediate flow of patients," a local source said.
