10 hurt as roller coaster derails

A roller coaster carriage at a theme park in Scotland came off its rails on Sunday and fell nine meters onto a children’s ride, local media reported, with police saying 10 people had been injured.

The Daily Record newspaper cited eyewitness reports saying the carriage, carrying 10 people, on the Tsunami ride at M&D’s theme park in Motherwell in southern Scotland flew off the rails as it turned a corner and plummeted to the ground. Lanarkshire Police said in a statement on Twitter that 10 casualties had been confirmed and an investigation was under way. (Reuters)
