Report: Girl’s Hair Got Caught in Spinning Carnival Ride

Whether a carnival ride malfunctioned before catching the hair of a young female rider will likely be determined pending the results of an ongoing investigation into the incident that occurred in South Omaha in May 2016. According to, the 11-year-old child has already undergone an unspecified number of surgeries as a result of injuries sustained in the accident, and that more operations, and long-term vision problems, may loom on the horizon.

Additional details reveal that the accident victim’s hair and some of her scalp were ripped from her head after her hair became caught in part of a spinning carnival ride known as the King’s Crown. The child’s mother states that the 11-year-old is finally talking and drinking water after her breathing tube was removed and that the doctors are amazed at the progress she is making. The mother added that there should be stricter regulations governing carnival rides including proper maintenance and seat belts on the rides, the website reported.

How a Head Injury Lawyer Can Help

Amusement park owners and operators have a duty to provide a safe environment for visitors, park employees, and contracted employees. If there are risks of harm associated with their parks and rides, they also must provide adequate warnings and safeguards. If an amusement park owner fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.

People injured at amusement parks, fairs, or carnivals through no fault of their own may be eligible to recover money for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering

The families of those killed at amusement parks may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.

People who have been injured at an amusement park or carnival are advised to seek a qualified personal injury lawyer to help them protect their legal rights.
