A day at a theme park is supposed to be filled with laughter, thrilling rides, and tons of terrible fried food. But lately, it seems more and more attractions are malfunctioning, leading to tragedies both in the U.S. and abroad.

The latest story comes from Kishkinta amusement park in Chennai, India. Twenty employees were kept in the park after hours to test out a new ride, the Disco Dancer. What started out as a fun tilt-a-whirl-style ride quickly turned disastrous when it fell from nearly 15 feet in the air.

One employee perished during the ride.

While it’s hard for many parents to say no when their kids beg to go to the park for an afternoon of fun, stories and tragedies like this make the decision just a little bit easier. If you’d like to read up on the safety of your local parks and how you can educate your kids on safe riding, go here.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the employee who was killed and the others who were injured.

Travelers at a train station in Udaipur, India, heard distant yelps from what sounded like a distressed animal. Following the screams for help, they discovered Florence, a street dog who had been hit by an oncoming train and had lost her leg as a result.

Despite her recent row with trauma, Florence was up and walking around the train tracks when a rescue team with Animal Aid Unlimited arrived. A true testament to just how strong the sweet girl was…but her story wasn’t over there. She had a long road to recovery ahead.

Check out Florence’s emotional journey below:

Florence’s road to recovery left her without a leg, but she still has a reason to wag her tail and play. If you can, please consider donating to Animal Aid Unlimited — they’re doing the work very few are in India.
