Two people were killed and 12 injured on Wednesday after falling off a slide at a theme park in southwest China. The accident happened at the Children’s Garden attraction in Taiping, Sichuan province, on the first day of the Labour Day holiday, the town government said in a statement on social media. The park had been closed and "the person responsible for the business" had been detained pending an investigation, it said. The statement did not give details of the people killed, except to say they were both adults. Of the 12 people hurt, six were adults and six children, it said, adding they were being treated in hospital. A woman who was at the park with her daughter when the accident happened said she thought the ride might have been overcrowded. "I was on a rope bridge and saw four or five rubber lifebuoys with people on them all crowded together and sliding down," the woman, who declined to give her name, said. "The people were screaming, I’m not sure whether from fright or excitement, but within seconds they all flew off the slide." She said it had been raining on the day and she thought the ride, which ran down a steep hill, might have been running faster than normal. n a now deleted post on WeChat, the theme park said it had 32 slides of various sizes. A video posted on V.qq.com shows a young boy riding down a slide similar to the one on which the accident happened. The guard rails appear to be about 50cm (20 inches) high. The park posted a notice on WeChat on Thursday saying it was closed for upgrading, but did not mention the accident.
