Ride in Karachi's amusement park crashes, killing minor, injuring over dozen


KARACHI: A minor girl was killed and more than 16 others injured Sunday night when a swing collapsed in an amusement park on the city's University Road, rescue and security officials said. A 16-seater Evolution ride came thundering down late last night in Askari Park of the Old Sabzi Mandi area, killing 8-year-old Kashaf — the daughter of Abdul Samad — and wounding numerous others. The new ride was opened for a trial today but was closed right after the accident, with police shutting down the recently-opened park to the public.
