Luke Waters, Ten News. Two women have been killed in a fair ground tragedy in the UK. They were thrown from a giant jumping castle when a gust of wind blew it into the air. A family fun day that turned into tragedy. Captured on a mobile phone, this was the terrifying moment

a giant castle was lifted 150 feet into the air before landing into a crowded riverside park. Panic for dozens of visitors. I seen an opening, I tried to get out but it was closed in on us and then there was people behind us shouting

"Get out this way" and then we all got out and it was just devastating seeing it. And these are the remains. It was meant to be part of an interactive art display. So far, two people have died and 12 others, including a 3-year-old, have been injured. Although it's not a windy day, it appears to have taken off, it's clipped one the CCTV cameras.

A number of casualties have accidentally fallen from the castle or the device, as it was flown into the air and it has landed some 75 to 100 yards away.

The park has now been closed and an investigation has now begun into how this tragic accident happened. A 5-year-old Indian boy has been rescued after being stuck down a well for two days. Millions of people looked on as the televised rescue effort was beamed live around the country. Until the rescue, the boy had been monitored by a closed-circuit camera that had been lowered into the well. The bare-chested child fell into the 17m hole while playing on Friday. Oxygen was pumped down the well to keep him alive. Ahead, the AFL set to deal with a headbutt incident, that's when Ten's morning news returns.
