Carro de monstruo mata a 6 personas en el Air Show de México
Accidente Monster Truck en Aeroshow De Chihuahua TERCER VIDEO
A MONSTER truck has crashed into a grandstand after its brakes failed during a stunt show in northern Mexico, killing six people and injuring 47 others, officials say.

Two minors were among the fatalities at the Extreme Airshow in the city of Chihuahua, capital of the eponymous state bordering the US state of Texas, said municipality spokesman Jose Luis Dominguez.

Some 3500 people attended the demolition show, in which pick-up trucks with giant tyres crush smaller cars, when the vehicle lost control and smashed into the stands at around 7pm local time on Saturday, Dominguez said.

At least 35 of the 47 injured people were taken to hospitals. The park El Rejon, where the show took place, was immediately closed and helicopters and ambulances were dispatched.

It was the third annual airshow, which attracts 200,000 people on average and includes aeroplane stunts, skydiving and motorcycle acrobatics among other daredevil acts.
El alcalde de Chihuahua, Marco Quezada, confirmó que seis personas perdieron la vida y 47 resultaron lesionadas, algunas de ellas de gravedad, luego de que el conductor de una "camioneta monstruo" perdiera el control del volante y se fuera contra un graderío lleno de espectadores, en un festival aéreo organizado por el Ayuntamiento de esta capital.

Hasta las 19:30 las causas del accidente no habían sido establecidas, de acuerdo con el edil el chofer es investigado, a la par que un grupo de peritos analiza lo ocurrido.

Por su parte, el gobernador Cesar Duarte informó que se giraron instrucciones al Banco de Sangre del estado para que apoye en todo lo necesario a los hospitales en donde se encuentran las víctimas, además que el secretario General del Gobierno acudió al sitio para ofrecer atención a las familias de los fallecidos.

El ayuntamiento detalló que dentro los víctimas mortales hay tres niños.

Aparentemente la camioneta, con llantas de 1.50 metros de altura, pasaba sobre vehículos chatarra apilados, sin embargo se desvió hacía un graderío y arrolló a decenas de personas.

El Extremo Aero Show es un festival anual que dura tres días, en los cuales se presentan espectáculos con aviones, globos, motocross y camionetas monstruo.
