According to him, one woman suffered bad injuries while two other individuals’ conditions were unknown yet. Three ambulances and a fire engine were rushed to the scene.

“The case will be further investigated according to Section 6 of the Selangor State Entertainment and Places of Entertainment Enactment 1995, which is operating without a license,” he further stated.

As seen in a viral video circulating on social media, the ‘Sotong Ride’ was still rotating mid-way when the three individuals were thrown off the red ‘car’ to the ground after hitting the safety bars around the ride.

The ‘Sotong ride’ or known as Octopus/Monster ride is a classic ride that can be found in many fun fairs. The ride spins while moving up and down at a slow pace. At the same time, each car at the end of the tentacles spins while the giant arms move up and down in a circular motion.

In 2017, 15 people were injured after a spinning octopus ride smashed into the ground in Thailand. There are many other news of accidents and mishaps from the same ride reported worldwide.
