In a freak accident at an amusement park on the outskirts of Chennai, Afia Magh (20) from Nagaland, a flight attendant with Kingfisher Airlines, lost her life on Tuesday after she was thrown off a ride.
Police said three persons — the manager of EVP amusement park, operator and his assistant — have been arrested on charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
According to reports, Afia was at the park with her friends. She suffered head injuries when she was thrown off the "Octopus Ride" — in which cars attached to five to eight arms pinned to a central axis spin and move up and down in random.
She was rushed to a nearby private hospital, where she was declared dead, said sources. The exact cause of death is being probed. — With PTI
