They stopped the Wheel at Sea World today, because it was designed by the same people that designed the one that had the accident, it was closed for a couple of hours whilst they checked it over.

Although they are different makes (Bussink and Mondial) I would say the gondolas are of the same make (these are from a European ski-lift manufacturer contracted to both companies)

It appears one gondola has become locked instead of swiveling and remaining upright, and has subsequently stopped the one next to it from properly rotating, with tragic consequences.
