While the families of the victims pointed fingers at poor maintenance, the park officials said the accident happened due to overcrowding.
“The ride has a capacity of just two, but many children in spite of our warnings went up the ride, which caused it to cave in,” an official of the park said.
The victims’ families also accused the park officials of not doing enough to rescue the injured.
“The locals informed police who immediately came to the spot, rescued the injured and sent them to hospitals. The park officials did nothing to help them,” said a man who came to the park with his son.
Of the 17 injured, the condition of six is said to be serious.
“The condition of six, who have multiple fractures, is critical and they have been shifted to a government hospital,” said Krishna Pradhan of Kolkata Heart Clinic and Research Hospital.
