I recently read about a county fair where a teenager was thrown from a high-speed spinning ride. She flew into an aluminum fence. Luckily, there was an EMT close by. The girl, age 15, was in a lot of pain and suffered from shock. She was hospitalized.
It seems the over-the-shoulder restraint did not work correctly. Investigators are looking into the cause of this accident; they are also interviewing witnesses. Initial reports state there is no evidence that a mechanical malfunction caused this. The ride is closed for now.
It is sad when a young girl looks forward to a day at the fair and ends up injured and in pain. The family needs to be compensated for expenses. Anyone injured at a local amusement park or fair, should definitely consult an experienced personal injury lawyer in the San Bernardino area.
