One bystander watching the ride caught it all on video:
The park is now quickly looking into what caused the rides malfunction, that turned deadly. The ride owners told the Ahmedabad Mirror “All our equipment as well as maintenance certificates, police certification, fire NOC and other documents are in order.

This is my wife's biggest fear and the reason she won't ever go on a ride with me at an amusement park, unless it's a major park like Disney. How scary for those people! Hope the survivors fully recover and the families of those killed can find some peace after such a horrific accident. Wow!
