China Quality Ride Murders Child

RollingGirls-AmusementPark-by-Tanu

China quality products have caused yet another tragedy, with a ride at Zhaohua Park captured on camera bashing a young girl to death in an incident which seems not to have attracted so much as a fine, the park instead opting to pay off the girl’s parents with a miserly $100,000.

Footage of the upsetting incident was captured by an onlooker, which showed the 13-year-old girl in question managing to slip out of her seat and be swung by the ride itself:

The girl was then bashed into the ride’s metal railing before plummeting to the ground, with rescue responders failing to revive her at the scene and causing her to be rushed to a hospital; unfortunately her injuries proved too great and she was later pronounced dead.

Investigations by police revealed that a malfunction had occurred while the ride was operating, causing the girl’s seat belt to break; police additionally discovered that the ride’s safety bar fit rather loosely over passengers, meaning that an accident was apparently only a matter of time for smaller riders.

Park management discussed compensation with the family of the deceased, agreeing on a sum of about $127,000, with the wounds inflicted by such a tragedy apparently being hastily healed by the promise of fortune and criminal culpability seemingly out of the question…

All of the larger rides at the park were shut down as a result of the incident so that they could be inspected, while other companies who had the same type of ride in their possession have been advised to do the same and told to contact its manufacturer.

    It's one thing to bash china for whatever reason, instead you should bash the engineer behind the design and manufacturing. Designing a ride like that takes a lot of preparation, experience and most of all, work.
    Then comes manufacturing process with use of enough quality materials to not have accidents like this.

    Obviously a failed process in this case, but as mentioned below, such accidents happen worldwide, the point in making it loud is to point out design mistakes and prevent them from happening or minimize it to minimum or if possible, eliminate the accidents from happening.

    Process of building this ride:
    1)Paper Design
    2)Manufacturing
    3)Testing
    4a)(if mistakes happened)Obviously eliminating errors
    4b) Testing again
    (Repeat 4ab until you eliminate the mistakes you had)
    5)Manufacturing from better materials
    6)TESTING AGAIN!!!
    7)Selling the product
    8)Ride it yourself every month
    9)Taking responsibility for anything that happened.
    10)Die if you failed around point 4.

    Its not just that. You gotta check the machines EVERYDAY. That's what we do in Port'Aventura. Normal rides are checked every 2 hours. Extreme rides are checked every 45 minutes.

    Please keep up the good work. I think good long term maintenance is very important, for virtually anything.

    chinese people are neglecting anything and everything. even common sense and good maners are rarely seen. probably a side effect from all that pollution.

    China has a reputation of using cheap materials to save money. This is why most stuff made in China is shit.

    The engineer was chinese, you fucking idiot. China is a fucking shithole because its people are driven by greed and selfishness. They are monsters who don't hesitate to sacrifice children if it saves them money.

    Accidents happen quite often in theme parks believe it or not. You just don't hear about them as often. Not something exclusive to China.

    Though I am surprised with the small amount of money they got. There was an accident that happened in England where a couple got over 1 million for their injury.

    Fatal amusement park accidents actually have a somewhat high incident rate worldwide, it's true. Between 1990 and 2004 it came out to be 0.27 deaths per year which is worse than the risk of death by shark attacks, though perhaps for this very reason the Consumer safety Product Commission no longer tracks amusement park fatalities, so it's hard to get data more recent than 2005.

    The monetary amount is what gets me here, though. Are we sure that's the proper monetary conversion, because $100,000 just seems like a very cheap cost for a child's life due to park error.

    Nope, it's a higher chance of happening if it's China made.. Nuff said

    I've seen worse (didn't watch the video) - for example, the suicide of Budd Dwyer.

    Would I call for the video to be removed? No.

    Will I ever watch it again? No.

    and that's when they introduced a slight delay of two minutes to the "live" imagery.

    I saw that suicide live on tv back in the day in Pennsylvannia. Never forgot it either. Loooong time ago. Early 80s it must have been.

    Youtube used to have a ton of stuff like that on it, I use to get it recommended to me all the time. I was never even looking for it either but like I'd go to a video of cute kittens and get recommended a video of some asshole stomping kittens to death or I'd look at a video of women jumping on a trampoline and get recommended a video of a dude getting impaled on a pole while jumping off a trampoline... it can be a pretty fucked up place. Though to their credit I've noticed that lately I tend to see this kind of stuff WAY less than I use to so maybe they're trying to clean up their image or something lol.

    This is horrible, to think of all park rides one of the most horrifying ones would malfunction. How badly designed would that thing had had to be?

    design is secondary. Cheap construction, bad maintenance is most likely the cause of this.

    This site bashes everyone and everything. It's China's turn today. It'll be someone else's turn tomorrow.

    Regardless of the country, we're all human. Humans make mistakes. That's why the robots will take over and exterminate us all. We deserve it.
