Thoughts go out to the families of the deceased :(
Stumbled across a video on youtube, showing an amateur simulation of what happened, it's pretty sick actually and it just goes to show there are some sick people out there...
I saw that video too! it seems to be made for a news artical, it's not been made very sensitivly at all! :shock:
From looking at the video it does seem like a very cheap twist on the Epcot ride which goes up and down a pole. No technical cabins just normal type ride cars, twister cars you get at the fair. attached to the frame. Not saying there's a problem with that, just describing how it looks.
Seems that one of them fell off and then would have knocked a couple as it dropped to the ground because of the speed it was going.
Just read some more:
An employee of OCT East told Guangzhou Daily that while the high-pressure chambers were spinning at high speed and at a high attitude, an explosion occurred, sending many of the chambers falling to the ground and colliding with each other, killing and injuring passengers.
Mr. Lin, a migrant worker who survived the accident, told Apple Daily that after getting out of his chamber, he witnessed other chambers hitting the ground and colliding with each other. He said it was a terrible scene, with blood and flesh everywhere.
This would suggest that they didn't all fall at once and that if a guy had the time to get out of his car and still saw them falling it could have taken a good minute.
Sad news. :(
