At PortAventura near Salou in Spain, a tree crashed onto a rollercoaster on Sunday, injuring about 14 people, two of them critically, reports Breaking News.

A tree fell near the Tomahawk ride on Sunday morning, causing an incident, according to a statement from the theme park, which is popular with visitors to Spain’s Costa Dorada. The incident occurred because of high winds.

The statement went on, “Some of the branches hit visitors who were on the ride,” reports Breaking News.

Emergency services in Catalonia said that they had treated 14 patients. Two were sent to two different hospitals in critical condition. Three others were admitted to the hospital in less critical condition.

On the PortAventura website, the Tomahawk ride is described as a “children’s roller coaster with frenetic climbs and descents,” reports Breaking News.
