Details are still vague, it’s understood the last coach on the fun fair train went off the track at the popular holiday destination, at about 12 o’clock on Saturday afternoon.

A man who was on the ride says, “The train just gave way on the tracks and we fell into the water down the steep embankment, 7 of us or 8 of us were involved and we’ve got a broken pelvis we had an 8 months pregnant woman on the train, who fell off as well”.

The resort’s Director of Operations Borris Borman says there were no fatalities.
