They had gone on a ride called the Orbiter, which involved them sitting in seats attached to a long metal pole which spun around a central structure. However, their seats came off the ride when it was moving and sent them flying through the air where they landed on a fast food stand.
As a result of this, both women had to go to hospital and receive treatment for their injuries. It was later discovered that the ride was 27 years old.
Because of this, both women chose to seek compensation. The claim went to court and the owner of the ride was found to have breached health and safety standards and ordered to pay them compensation. In addition to this, the owner was also fined, as was the Fairground Inspection Service for not noticing the danger that the ride presented to the public.
