The incident took place at a theme park in Motherwell, Scotland, Southeast of Glasgow, and left at least seven people injured, as communicated by the Scotland Police Department. The mishap occurred on the Tsunami ride at M&Ds theme park when the carriages, according to the eyewitnesses, reportedly went off-track and fell onto another ride below, which was a children’s ride. According to the park officials, the carriages were operating at a height of 20 meters.

The Scotland Police and emergency services personnel, including first-aid attendants, were apprised of the situation and dispatched to the location soon after the images of  people trapped inside the wreckage of multiple rollercoaster carriages were posted online by the eyewitnesses. The images quickly became viral and spread like wildfire.

The police officials are working in tandem with the other emergency services personnel to investigate the incident, completely, have not reported any casualties. It has been confirmed that the accident has left at least seven people injured. However, the nature or the seriousness of these injuries, including the present condition of the victims, has not been made available to the public.
