18 people, mostly children, injured in carnival ride failure

carnival rideA Connecticut carnival ride lost power Sunday afternoon, leaving 18 people, most of them children, injured. When the “swing” ride at the Oyster Festival in Norwalk lost power, riders immediately fell to the ground.

Twelve children and one adult were transported to hospitals in the area, many suffering from broken bones. Five others at the scene refused treatment. All but one victim were released by Sunday evening. The remaining hospitalized patient sufered non-life threatening injuries, however.

Other rides at the festival were shut down following the accident, but reopened later in the day after inspection.
