Swedish television reported one person was killed and several others injured when a roller coaster derailed in Stockholm on Sunday.
Park officials told public broadcaster SVT that one of the Jetline roller coasters derailed and fell to the ground at Grona Lund amusement park.
Park spokeswoman Annika Troselius told SVT: “It is tragic and shocking. “Unfortunately, we have been informed that one person was killed and many injured.”
Police said seven people, both children and adults, were hospitalized following the accident.
The amusement park was evacuated to facilitate the work of rescue teams.
SVT reporter Jenny Lagerstedt, who was standing in line for another carriage, said the carriage fell from a great height with passengers inside.
“Suddenly I heard metal thud and then the games started shaking,” she said. Rescuers had to get other passengers trapped in other carriages on the roller coaster after the crash.
