Break Dance Ride Injures Two at Matějská pouť

A ride that injured two girls has been removed from Matějská pouť (St. Matthew’s Fair) at the Incheba Expo Praha fairgrounds in Prague 7-Holešovice.

The accident occured on the afternoon of Thursday 15 March when a car fell off the Break Dance ride — a regular fixture of Matějská pouť and other travelling fairs that visit Prague. (I’ve been on it myself at least once.)

While the ride itself has been removed from the fair, a video of the Break Dance still figures prominently on the official Matějská pouť website‘s homepage — complete with an unintentionally ironic soundtrack of screaming thrill-seekers.

The cause of the accident, which is still unknown, is being investigated by the police.

iDnes.cz has photos and video of the scene of the accident at the link below.
