The death toll in the accident at Kishkinta theme park near Tambaram rose to two with a 33-year-old worker succumbing to injuries on Friday evening.

Saifuddin (33) sustained grave injuries on his chest and head after the giant wheel that was being tested on Wednesday crashed.

He died at a private hospital at West Tambaram, the police said. While S. Mani of Nallur village died on Wednesday, Saifuddin and other workers were injured.

The giant wheel was severely damaged during the floods and was repaired recently.

The ride was being tested with a group of workers when it crashed, throwing the workers to the ground. The Kancheepuram district police have arrested the park’s proprietor Jose Kunus and manager Sakthivel on charges of negligence.
