Around 20 workers at Chennai’s Kishkinta park were part of a trial ride on a new giant wheel — the Disco Dancer — when it swung out of control on Wednesday night.

Manikandan, a native of Somangalamnallur a village near the Tamil Nadu capital, suffered head injuries and was declared dead at a hospital. Another worker is in a critical condition.

Josh Punnish, the owner of the park, and a manager were arrested. According to police reports, the workers — from nearby villages — said they were forced to undergo the trial ride.

A nine-year-old NRI girl died after falling into an automated swimming pool at the same park in 2013.

In 2012, a flight attendant with now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines died after she was thrown off a ride at another amusement park on the outskirts of Chennai.
