    Aus > Dreamworld accident

    So tragic that it shouldn't of happened, Sadly it was likely a time bomb with how badly managed, under staffed and the training situation is since that information came out.

    I've personally be on this ride and can say i honestly would never of picked this to happen it's such a simple ride anyone can almost ride it as long as you're at a certain height. Truly scary and shocking events.

    I first went on this ride as a little kid. It's so tame. Such a sad thing to hear, would not have been a nice way to go..

    I heard about this a few days ago. It's such a sad event. I read about the 2 children that were able to save themselves so thank goodness for that. RIP to those that lost their life.

    My friend was there when this happened. He messaged me on facebook saying "holy shit dude something seriously just happened here at dreamworld" and I asked what and he didn't know at that point. Then later on we both found out like 4 people got killed.
