A young girl fell from a ride called the Octopus at the Six Flags America amusement park on Friday, August 3. The Octopus is described by the park as a “mild thrill ride” that takes riders up and down and spins in circles.
Some witnesses say the girl, who’s name and age have not been released, fell 25 feet from the amusement park ride. When the paramedics arrived the child was conscious. She suffered possible head, hip, and leg injuries and was flown to a local hospital.
The cause of the fall is under investigation. A spokesperson for the Six Flags America amusement park did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
