MADRID: Some 14 people were injured, two seriously, today after a tree fell onto a rollercoaster at PortAventura in Tarragona, eastern Spain, the theme park said.

“This morning, due to strong winds … there was an incident caused by a tree falling close to the Tomahawk ride,” the theme park, a favourite with tourists to Spain’s Costa Dorada, said in a statement.

“Some of the branches hit visitors who were on the ride,” the statement continued.

Catalan emergency services said they had attended to 14 people.

Two in a critical condition were taken to two separate hospitals.

Three people in a less serious condition were also taken to hospital.

The Tomahawk ride is a “children’s rollercoaster with frenetic climbs and descents”, according to PortAventura’s website.
