At least nine individuals were hospitalized after the giant wheel at a carnival in Balagolla Bandaranaike Maha Vidyalaya grounds, Kandy crashed last night.

The injured were admitted to the Kandy General Hospital. Balagolla Police are investigating the safety precautions taken to erect the giant wheel.

Police said an old lady is alleged to have tried to change her seat at the top of the wheel which had ‘unbalanced’ the entire structure.(L.B.Senaratne)
