wo people were killed and 12 more injured on Wednesday after falling off a slide at a Sichuan amusement park.
The 14 tourists, including eight adults and six teenagers, fell off the 235-meter-long super slide, which is touted as the “world’s longest,” at around 5 pm that afternoon. Footage from the scene shows people lying on the ground in a forest near the slide.
The accident occurred at the “Children’s Garden” amusement park, located on the outskirts of Chengdu. The park has a shaky safety record with a rope walkway collapsing, injuring three visitors, in July 2017, just three days after its grand opening.
The park has now been shut down as local authorities have opened an investigation into the cause of the accident.
