7 of 8 injured in Mexico ride accident out of hospitals

Mexico City, Dec 27 : Authorities in Mexico City said Sunday that seven of the eight people injured in an accident on a ride at a holiday-season fair are out of danger and recovering at home.
Authorities said an eighth victim, who was under 18, is making ?satisfactory? progress at a local hospital.
The victims were riding on a ?swirling cups? ride of the small, towable type when the seats they were strapped into somehow came loose.
The downtown Cuauhtemoc borough where the accident took place late Saturday said it would inspect all 153 of the privately operated, moveable rides installed as part of a Christmas tradition. It said it would shut them all down if there were any more mishaps.
Itinerant operators tow the often-rickety rides around the country, earning money by setting them up at local fairs.
