Mexico. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER FALL FROM AMUSEMENT RIDE, MOTHER DIES

A 50 years old woman and her 26 years old daughter fell from a Space Loop ride in a Luna Park in Penjamo, Guanajuato, Mexico. The two safety bars of the ride opened at the same time right when the ride was looping, resulting in the fall of the two person from a height of 10 meters.

The two women were immediately taken to the hospital; the mother, who suffered very heavy damages, died in the hours after.

The ride has two different safety bars, one singular and one collective, for redundancy. It is still unknown how the two safety bars could have opened at the same time.
