Two men and two women have died on Dreamworld’s Thunder River Rapids this afternoon. Two of the parkgoers were brother and sister, visiting with family at the park, and all four of the guests were between ages 32-45. Local police said in a statement that the injuries were due to the rapids’ conveyor belt, operating as a lift hill.
Dreamworld CEO Craig Davidson said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by this. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families involved and their loved ones.”
Dreamworld has since been closed for further inspection regarding Thunder River Rapids.
