Chennai: In a shocking incident captured on camera, a teenager lost his life and several others were injured when a joy ride crashed at an amusement park in Chennai on Wednesday night.

The incident happened at around 8 pm when 20 workers at Kishkinta theme park were asked to sit on a joy ride named "Disco Dancer", which was on a trial run. The revolving merry-go-round ride swung for a couple of times before it collapsed and threw people away in different directions.

The incident left S Manikandan (19) seriously injured. Following the incident, he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead by the doctors. Several others also sustained injuries during the crash.

As per reports, last year's floods had left the ride damaged. On wednesday, it was on a trial run before being opened to the public.

Police have arrested Josh Punnish, the owner of the park, and manager Shathivelan under Sec 337 and Sec 304(2) of IPC.
