Sonepur: An attempt to take selfies on a giant wheel at annual fair of Dhanu Yatra in S Rampur under Dunguripali block of Subarnapur (Sonepur) district proved fatal for a youth on Wednesday.
Reportedly, Jaga Barik of Telipali village and his friend Madha Chhatria had gone for a giant wheel ride at the annual fair. However, the joy ride turned tragic after they lost their balance while taking selfies and fell down from the giant wheel.
They were immediately rushed to Dunguripali Community Health Centre (CHC) and following preliminary treatment Jaga was referred to Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR) in Burla as his condition was critical.
