Children, women among 16 injured as giant wheel joyride crashes to ground at Mohali fair

At least 16 persons, including children and women, were injured when a high-rise spinning joyride broke down and fell at the Dashera Ground, Phase-8 in Mohali on Sunday evening around 9pm. The victims received head and neck injuries and are in a state of shock.

A nearby PCR rushed the injured to the Phase-6 civil hospital. The bouncers and the management staff fled the spot with onlookers giving them a chase.

DSP City-2 HS Bal said the joyride was owned by Jaipur-based Mukesh Sharma. The management has been called to record the statement after which action would be taken.

Five persons have been admitted to a Phase-9 private hospital.
