Ten people injured in roller coaster derailment in Scotland

kgw.com

The Tsunami roller coaster went off the rails at the M&D’s amusement park in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, injuring several people. (Demi Campbell, NBC News)

Eight children and two adults were injured after a roller coaster derailed and fell off the tracks at an amusement park Sunday afternoon in Scotland, police said.

M&D’s amusement park in Motherwell in North Lanarkshire said in a statement that the theme park was closed after “a serious incident occurred at M&D’s today involving The Tsunami roller coaster.”

Lanarkshire police said the ride, made up of gondolas in a train and carrying nine people, detached from its rails, struck the ride’s main structure and crashed into the ground.

After initially saying 11 people had been injured, authorities later confirmed that eight children and two adults were treated at three hospitals. Their conditions weren’t reported.

 

GM River Days

detroitnews.com

It didn’t take long before Amare expressed interest in the “big boat” — the U.S. Coast Guard’s Mobile Bay.

Since Friday night, it’s been on the Detroit River, available for walk-around tours; more than 4,500 people had toured by Sunday afternoon.

But with GM River Days, now in its 10th year downtown, and with temperatures approaching 90 degrees, Sunday was as good a time as any.

River Days wasn’t purely about boats, though several attractions revolved around them, from Diamond Jack’s river tours to jet ski demonstrations to a ship 89 feet high. There were carnival rides, games, musical stages and fair food.

 

Best State Fair

kxnet.comThe North Dakota State Fair begins in a month – and it will have a new honor to boast about this year.

The website Smart Asset dot com, has named it as America’s best state fair.

In choosing the North Dakota State Fair as the best, the website noted that last year’s attendance was just over 300,000, a number that’s more than 43% of the state’s population.

Smart Asset says the second-best fair is Arizona’s, while the third best is in Delaware – the only top fair located east of the Mississippi River.
