18 injured in Sevilla fairground accident
By:
ThinkSpain , Sunday, April 10, 2005

Eighteen people were injured, four of whom seriously, yesterday when a merry-go-round at a fairground in Sevilla´s Guillena zoo collapsed. Fifteen of those injured were children.

Two of the most seriously injured, a woman and an 11 year old girl, were airlifted to a Sevilla city centre hospital by helicopter; both had suffered serious head injuries, and the young girl also sustained a serious leg injury. Two others were treated at the scene in a SAMUR mobile intensive care unit before being taken to hospital.

Police have opened an investigation to confirm the cause of the accident, but eye-witnesses explained that they watched in horror as attraction´s main support snapped in two, crushing the victims underneath the weight of upper part of the structure. The attraction, which belongs to the Mundopark fair, was built in 2001, and had passed all the required safety inspections.
