Four people were killed during the incident on one of the rides in a children's theme Park in Australia. The incident occurred at the theme Park, Dreamworld in Queensland.
Two people stuck on the ride on the river, said the police journalists and two trapped, perhaps, in the conveyor belt system. Senior Manager operations ambulance service Gavin fuller said that the victims were two men and two women in the age of "32 to the early 40's. They "received injuries that were incompatible with life," he said.
Craig Davidson, CEO of Dreamworld, announced at a press conference that the theme Park was closed after a "tragic" incident. "At this stage the Park is closed and Dreamworld works closely with the police and ambulance to establish the facts around the incident. We are deeply shocked and saddened by this and our hearts and our thoughts go to the families of the victims and their families , "said Davidson in a press conference.
The Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull says he is "very saddened" by the tragic incident. "I am very saddened to learn of the tragic accident at Dreamworld. Theme parks are the place for family fun and happiness, not grief. It's very, very, sad, tragic event. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their loved ones. This is a very sad day, and we believe that will be a thorough investigation of the causes of the accident".
