Five people were injured in a state fair accident in North Carolina that shocked everyone. On Oct. 25, The Chicago Tribune reported that late Thursday night this ride all of a sudden restarted and that is when the problem occurred. The passengers were trying to get off of the ride as it started up again. This is a shocking ending to some of their vacations.
There were five people injured and one of them was even a worker there. They all had to be taken to the hospital. Two of them have been released, but there of these people are still in the hospital being treated. The State Department of Labor will be checking it out to see what happened.
There are two different fair rides out there called The Vortex. This one spins around and flips people upside down while they are on it. This was a new ride to the North Carolina state fair. Will this make you think twice about riding on one of them again? Sound off in the comments and please like my Facebook to stay up to date on the latest news.
