Riders were strapped in and flung high in the air for the 360-degree swing ride.

But dramatic video footage shows how the metal arm of the ride snapped in half – sending riders plummeting to the ground.

Screams of joy and delight turned into cries of pain as the riders were crushed by the ride at Istiklol amusement park.

The Uzbek authorities said one teenage female rider was killed but did not specify if there were injuries to other riders.

The shocking video ends after the platform smashed to the ground.


The victim was identified by her initials MH, aged 19.
