LAHORE: Three children were injured when a swing collapsed at the Racecourse Park on Jail Road on the second day of Eid (Thursday).

The incident occurred at the public park where hundreds of families, including children, had gathered for recreation during Eid holidays.

According to a mobile phone footage, the three children suffered injuries when the swing collapsed due to a technical fault, causing panic among their families and other visitors, who rushed to the scene and rescued them.

Sources say the injured children were rushed to the Services Hospital where they were provided treatment.

Soon after the incident, the employees who were managing the swing escaped to avoid arrest as the police were also called to take action over the negligence.

The police say the matter was being investigated and they were waiting for an application against the employees responsible for the incident to proceed further.
