A 9 year old girl was among those who suffered injuries after a ride malfunctioned at the Jacksonville Fair. The incident took place on Saturday, November 10th.
Shawn Hall says that his 9 year old daughter was one of the riders on the Sky Flyer, a swing that is held by cables and spins in circles. The accident occurred when the swing malfunctioned, resulting in a collision with guard rails and other riders. The malfunction took place just after the ride began, but before the swings were lifted off the ground.
