At least six people, two of whom were teenagers, suffered injuries in Apalachicola, Florida after a carnival ride malfunctioned, an article of WTXL reported on November 5.
Reports have confirmed an air ambulance was needed on November 4 to immediately bring one of the victims, who sustained serious injuries, to a hospital in Tallahassee. An investigator told reports that the other victims, who were at the Florida Seafood Festival, sustained minor injuries. A person who was also at the fair stated people were aboard a carnival ride when it malfunctioned. Rescuers used a “jaws of life” to extract some of the victims, who were pinned by the ride. Though details of the accident were not available because the festival committee and state authorities are still investigating the incident, the involved ride stopped operation.
