Fourteen people were crammed on to the “cliffhanger” ride at a carnival in Thailand on November 30 2019.
At the peak of the rotation, and as the mechanical arms brought the guests down, the metal bar holding them in their seats came loose.
Nobody was killed or seriously injured in the accident, and the operator quickly turned off the machine.
Paramedics took those who were injured to the hospital.
The wife of the man who was set on fire in Hong Kong last week has told Chinese state television she was “heartbroken” by his injuries.
Lee Chi-cheung, 57, was left fighting for his life after the attack, which occurred on November 11 after a dispute with a group of masked protesters who had vandalized an MTR station in Ma On Shan in Hong Kong’s New Territories.
According to police, he witnessed the vandalism and chased after the protesters. He was then attacked and suffered head injuries. As he walked away, he shouted “You are not Chinese” to the group. The protesters responded by yelling “We are Hongkongers”. He returned to confront them and a dispute ensued, during which he was doused with a flammable liquid and set alight.
Police have classified the case as attempted murder and a spokeswoman from the Fire Services Department said Lee had sustained second-degree burns to 28 percent of his body.
