THIS is the horror moment a funfair ride plunged to the ground leaving at least two children with spine injuries.
Dramatic footage shows the ride slowly ascending a column before plummeting to the platform at a theme park in Itanhaém, in Sao Paolo.
The distressing clip shows a child strapped on the seat of the spaceship-themed ride as it smashes on the ground.
A 25-year-old mum and her 12-year-old son suffered spinal injuries while another four-year-old child was also injured in the crash, G1 reports.
The young child remains in hospital and will undergo a medical evaluation to determine whether he needs surgery.
Officials in Brazil said emergency services rushed to the scene of the accident on Avenida Jaime de Castro.
