Horse loses control and tramples over crowd of spectators

This was the shocking moment a horse race in north India descended into chaos, when one of the riders lost control of his mount and trampled a crowd of spectators.

Footage from yesterday (October 30) shows several bystanders, including children, being bundled over and stamped on by the rampaging horse before the rider managed to bring it to a halt.

The festival goers suffered injuries to their hands and legs but recovered after being treated with first aid in the hospital.

Among the injured were men, women and children who had been enjoying a day out at the races in Punjab, India.
