Two women have been hospitalized after reportedly straying from a Winter Wonderland ride in Cardiff.

Witnesses said they heard a “massive bang” last night.

Rescue workers treated the women at the scene before they were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Laura Rogers, 29 and from Pontypridd, said: “We played the games opposite and we heard a bit of excitement. When we looked over we saw all the security guards running around frantically.

“We noticed that they rushed to a hut. They then left with some sort of medical bag.

“As they sped past us, we followed them – then I realized there had been an accident on the way.

“Then I noticed a lady or girl on the side pinned against it. As I continued walking, I noticed another girl who looked unconscious.

“There were shoes on the floor that seemed to have flown off during that time.”

“Safety is always our priority and a full investigation into the incident is now underway. We as the organizer are working closely with the ride owner/operator and all relevant organizations to investigate. The ride will remain closed during this time.’

A spokesman for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: “We had a call at 5.15pm that two patients had reportedly strayed from a drive in Winter Wonderland.
