A video showed six children on the right side of a “Cozy Wave” ride being thrown 6 meters to the ground as the ride completed its second rotation. 

A restraining section on the 18 seater device had come loose.

The person who was operating the ride shut the machine down then just ran away without offering any help. 

Three girls aged 13, and 15 (2) and a 12 were old boy were taken to Phra Narai Maharat Hospital with head and leg injuries. 

Owner Sornchai, 62, said he had insurance for all his rides and would take responsibility. 

Lopburi police want to interview the person who was meant to be ensuring safety at the ride. 

They are investigating if all the permits were in place and if procedures were followed.
