The accident took place on the TNT Tren de la Mina rollercoaster at the Parque de Atracciones in Madrid, one of Spain’s oldest theme parks.

The rollercoaster reaches a height of 17.5 meters and travels through waterfalls at a maximum speed of 35mph, according to the theme park’s website.

The Parque de Atracciones opened in 1969 in Casa de Campo, the largest park in the Spanish capital.
