POLICE are working with the occupational health and safety department to investigate an incident where two individuals allegedly fell off a ferris wheel at the Vodafone Rakiraki carnival grounds.

Adi Ilisikia, 16, and Adi Noela Naidradra, 19, fell off the moving ferris wheel at midnight yesterday.

Police attended to the report and cordoned off the ferris wheel.

“A 16 and a 19-year-old sustained minor injuries and were treated and sent home,” said police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.

She said with such cases, police would work with the Labour Ministry and their OHS department regarding the incident.

The carnival has been organised by the Rakiraki Town Council.

“We will wait for the OHS and police to complete their investigations and advise us,” said council’s acting CEO Tulsi Ram.
