According to BBC, the incident happened at La Feria Chapultepec Magico amusement park on Saturday, 28 September.

Two men, aged 18 and 21, died in the crash.

Meanwhile, two women survived the crash but sustained severe injuries

Fox News reported that one of the women, aged 25, will have to undergo surgery for her leg injury.

The other victim requires intubation due to a severe brain injury.

The two were transferred to Angeles Mocel Hospital, Mexico City.
