One of the injured has lost a leg, just dreadful.

 

Pretty sobering, as a family we have stayed at the hotel for a few days for the last 4 years and ridden the smiler many, many times.

Hmm bet you won't be doing that again- sure it would be subjected to extreme safety tests now but i think id still be thinking what if, but i think that when i'm on even a fairground ride:laugh1:
