At about 11:10 a.m. on November 1, two air sightseeing trains in Shenzhen Overseas Chinese City Tourism Resort rear-ended when they reached folk villages. Six people were injured in the accident, two of whom were seriously injured and needed hospitalization. Shenzhen Overseas Chinese City Happy Valley Tourist Company said that the air train had been shut down and the cause of the accident was under investigation.
After the phone call was safe, the car rushed out and hit the front car.
On the first day of November in Shenzhen, the weather was fine. The autumn sunshine was not so hot as the summer fever, and the cool autumn wind was just suitable for outing and sightseeing.
At 10:00 a.m., Ms. Li accompanied her mother and nanny and her 2-year-old baby to the window of the world. She was ready to take the Happy Trunk Line for sightseeing. There were not many tourists waiting for the bus in front of her. At about 10:20, Ms. Li and her family got on the second section of train No. 3. Ms. Li and her mother sat down along the headway, while the nanny sat opposite with her baby in her arms. Ms. Li was busy taking pictures of the baby, pointing out the scenery outside the window to let the baby recognize.
Shortly after Lees train left, Mr. Yang of Sichuan also boarded train No. 4. He has worked in Shenzhen for many years, and has passed many times through the window of the world. Today, in the gap, I came to the window of the world alone. Soon, the train was in mid-air, green trees and tall buildings outside the window jumped into his mobile phone, and he was excited by the new perspective.
Two trains passed through the World Window scenic spot one by one along a track ten meters high, and soon entered the folk village. According to Ms. Li recalled, about ten minutes after driving from the window of the world, that is, around 10:45, the train suddenly stopped in the middle of the folklore village, and all the people on the train were surprised.
At this time, Mr. Yang of No. 4 found that the train ahead lay motionless on the track. When the two cars approached, No. 4 suddenly stopped. He did not feel inappropriate and continued to look at the scenery outside through his mobile phone.
More than ten minutes later, the two trains still did not move, and there were no rescuers. Mrs. Li was so worried that she called her lover to tell her about it. Then she called the alarm phone and contacted the gardener. Around 11 oclock, she saw a staff member coming to the train No. 3 outside. Ms. Li disclosed that the staff member repaired the car for about 10 minutes, then from outside into the train, ready to drive away. At that time, she thought that the trouble had been lifted, and she telephones her husband a peace.
Suddenly, the car rushed out and hit the front car in an instant. Mr. Yang even had no time to react when he was pushed out of the back seat because of inertia. His left face hit the back of the front seat. Fortunately, it only swelled up.
However, Ms Lis family is not so lucky. Shortly after she hung up her husbands phone, train No. 3 started slowly. Within seconds, the car body was suddenly hit by a violent crash. After the loud noise, the glass behind her crashed down. She was heavily shaken out of her left hand and hit the front seat. When she slowed down, she saw her mother covering her right face with her hands and dropping blood on the floor. I cant bear to look straight ahead. Luckily, the babysitter on the opposite side died holding the child, and the child was not hurt.
6 people were injured in the accident, 2 of them were seriously injured and needed to be hospitalized.
In a video circulated on the internet, the glass was broken and tourists asked each other about the injuries. One of the men said, Im holding the baby. When I see the situation is not good, I rush to protect the child and brush it! This guy bumped into it. At this time, a staff member stood in the middle of the two cars to repair, and explained to the tourists: I didnt expect this to hit, our system is out of order.

Ms. Li revealed that after the collision, more than 20 tourists from two cars were still trapped in mid-air for nearly 20 minutes before being taken back to Window of the World Station. His lover had already been waiting at the station for firefighters and medical staff, and the wounded were then sent to the nearby Hong Kong University Hospital for treatment.
In the afternoon, Nandu reporters rushed to Hong Kong University Hospital and learned from the nursesstation that a total of six injured people came to the hospital for treatment, of whom three were relatively mild, and had left after being bandaged and other treatments; in addition, Mr. Yang needed to stay in hospital for observation because of facial injuries (the journalists had left before publication); and two seriously injured people needed to be hospitalized. One of them was Ms. Lis mother, who suffered from fracture of the right zygomatic bone.
