Four people have sadly died in Dreamworld, Australia, after a malfunction on a ride.

The whole park was evacuated shortly after the malfunction, in which a raft was flipped, whilst on a conveyor belt, crushing two and throwing two others. The four people (two men and two women) were all aged between 32 and 40.

Dreamworld is Australia’s largest theme park with over 40 rides and attractions and is situated on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Queensland Ambulance acting supervisor Gavin Fuller said, “One of the rides has sustained some sort of malfunction, causing two people to be ejected, two caught, two males and two females.

They sustained injuries incompatible with life.”

The incident that occurred is the latest in a long line of recent theme park related horrors, even within the UK.

Last year, four people were left with crushed limbs and one reportedly lost a leg in a horror roller-coaster crash at Alton Towers.
