3 people killed at theme park

At a Gold Coast theme park "Dreamworld", 3 people were killed in an accident on the Thunder River Rapids ride.

On the website the ride is described as a "moderate thrill".

"Everyone was screaming" said witnesses to the event, including a little girl who's believe to have seen her mother die when the ride flipped over.

Very sad day for all the families involved.

In April this year, at the same theme park, a man nearly drowned after he was thrown from a log ride.

In September, several people had to be evacuated from a rollercoaster at nearby Seaworld during the holiday season. Nobody was injured in that incident.
