Carnival Ride in Connecticut Loses Power, Drops About 18, Mostly Children, to the Ground

Carnival Goers Injured

A carnival ride in Connecticut lost power over the weekend and at least 18 people were injured as a result.

According to an NBC News report, one ride at the Oyster Festival in Norwalk, Conn., suddenly lost power in the middle of operation, causing all the riders to fall to the ground.

Most of those injured in the incident were children. NBC reported that a dozen children were on the ride at the time. They, along with one injured adult, were taken to local hospitals to be treated for what were identified as non-life-threatening injuries. Five other people on the ride at the time refused further treatment at the scene.

Some of the injured were put into neck braces and others were treated for broken bones suffered from the fall, the NBC report noted.When the power stopped, children and other riders began “flying off the ride,” an eyewitness said.

Authorities told NBC News that the ride is a “swing ride” in which people are contained in carriages extending from a central post. After the incident, all other carnival rides at the Oyster Festival were stopped until safety inspections had been conducted. The other rides were re-opened that afternoon, the event organizer, the Norwalk Seaport Association, told NBC News.

The agency in charge of the Oyster Festival told NBC News that it is working with other agencies that have launched investigations into the incident.

The cars are truly funny, especially the car with a fat lady and the shoe car. Well, in retailon to this let's be serious now - As if the auto industry wasn't taking enough of a shellacking over the last couple of years first there were the Ford, Chrysler, and GM bailouts, and now the is in deep trouble. The Toyota recall and consumer backlash may have them running for payday loans before long, or at least they have dwindling market shares to look forward to. The sticky gas pedal defect is being handled, but the recent incident involving the Toyota Prius in San Diego cannot be helping matters, at all. They aren't the only recall to have gone into effect this year, as Nissan, Honda, and GM also had recalls, but none on par with Toyota's scale.
