Among the dead was a 40-yr-old, who was at the fair with his two children.  

Buffard said: ‘The carousel fell suddenly and hit the ground hard.’

An eight-year-old boy is among them.The ride was composed of three rotating axis with baskets carrying people in pairs and Buffard told BFM television that one of the axis somehow hit the ground.  
An investigation has been launched and the fairground shut down.
