Rabat – 20 people, between the ages of 13 and 26, were injured, on July 21, in an amusement park in the Mghogha district near Tangier railway station.
The carousel’s metallic support became detached causing a number of people on board to fall off. According to the local authorities of the Wilaya of the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region, the injuries were caused by both the accident and the panic which ensued afterward.

Local authorities, security services, and civil protection intervened to transport the injured victims to the Mohammed V Regional Hospital in Tangier.
Of the 20 people injured, 18 left the hospital after receiving the necessary care; only two people were placed under medical supervision.
