Shocking footage showed a group of festival-goers packed onto the platform before it toppled over into a large crowd.

The video then showed it slamming into the ground.

The victims were suspended 25ft in the air on the platform before being lowered to receive gifts from festival-goers on the ground.

The crane then toppled over in front of shocked attendees.

The dead victims have been identified as Chinnasamy, 60, S Bhoopalan, 40, K Muthukumar, 39, and B Jothibabu, 17.

Police spokesperson Deepa Satyan said the crane was on uneven ground, which likely caused it to fall.

The crane operator has reportedly been taken into custody as the investigation continues.
