At 11.30am yesterday, five people stared death in the face when the amusement park ride they were on malfunctioned, causing the seats they were strapped in to to free-fall for 16 metres.
The accident happened Tuesday at the Van Huong Mai Amusement Park in Chau Phu district in the southern province of An Giang.

Le Thi Lanh, Nguyen Thai Hai Dang, Huynh Tuan Khanh, Huynh Thi Xuan Nha and Nguyen Thai Duong from Thoai Son district are the victims who rode the faulty roller coaster (pictured).
According to an online report on Nguoi Lao Dong, the operation system experienced a technical error while they were being lifted up, and the whole platform supporting them plunged from a height of 16 metres.

The operator of the amusement park sent the victims to the Chau Doc General Hospital for treatment.

Four of the five are in stable health and have been transferred to the private Binh An Hospital in Chau Doc Town, An Giang.
However, the condition of the last victim – Ms. Le Thi Lanh, is serious as doctors suspect her spine suffered fractures caused by the fall.
Lanh is being monitored at the Chau Doc General Hospital.
Local authorities have cordoned off the amusement park pending investigation.
