© Diario de Avisos
Six children were taken to hospital after an incident at a funfair which was erected in San Sebastian de La Gomera for  the Fiestas Lustralesbeing celebrated now in honour of the island's patron saint Virgen de Guadalupe. The children were enjoying the 'Dragon' ride just before 7.30pm last night when an electrical fault on one of the cars caused a 'considerable' shower of sparks. Five children of around ten years of age had to be treated for burns and a sixth was treated for shock. All are said to be recovering well.
