Carnival Ride Collapses in California; 24 Injured

The ride has metal arms, each with a seat at the end attached by a chain, that swing outward as the ride picks up speed. The arms rise and fall as they spin around a center pole, putting the seats horizontal to the ground.

The pole apparently collapsed, causing the arms to crash back toward the center, said Dennis Townsend, a chief in the Calaveras County....

The riders — mostly children — were hurt when their seats struck the ground or other parts of the machine, he said.

From the looks of the height of that ride, it could have been that some of those on the ride could have had quite a fall. I haven't heard anything about this on the TV or seen any more reports that have more details.
