The Ferris wheel ride in Greene County that caused serious injuries to three female occupants was believed to have some parts that were considered “worn out,” a report of CBS News stated on August 13.
Reports said, three girls on August 8 were injured at Family Attractions Amusement after the Ferris wheel they were riding suddenly malfunctioned. The girls reportedly were over 30 feet above the ground when they fell. Third-party inspectors later found out that the rivets used in holding together parts of the Ferris wheel were already worn out and has declared that the ride is not fit to operate. The youngest of the three victims, a 6-year-old, is in critical condition due to the traumatic brain injury she sustained. The two other victims, a 10-year-old and a 16-year-old were also injured from the fall.
