Boy Falls off State Fair Ride, Rushed to Hospital

JACKSON, Miss. — A little boy fell more than 30 feet from a ride at the Mississippi State Fair last night.

He’s only seven-years-old and some people who so the accident say he was on the ride by himself.  It was the iconic sky lift.  That’s the ride that takes you high above the fairgrounds from one end of the midway and food court to the other.


The boy was conscious when paramedics put him in an ambulance.  He was rushed to the University Medical Center; but no word yet on his condition.  The State Fair Commission has not released any details about the incident yet.
