A cart they were riding in flipped upside down which caused them to fly into the air and land on the metal flooring below the Ferris wheel, authorities say.

The 22-year-old took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to post an image in which he is pictured alongside Spurs teammate Ben Davies in the aftermath of Sunday's finale 2-1 win against Manchester United before the bulldozers moved in at the historic venue.
The president's comments come as he deals with backlash from firing Comey last week and subsequent reports that raised questions about whether he might have tried to interfere with an investigation. That move, along with several after it, however, appears to have done the opposite. Reporters pressed the Colombian president to comment on Trump's " America First " policy and the proposed southern border wall, but Santos sidestepped controversy by praising cooperation with the USA in ending the ...
