Child dies after fall from ride at Royal Adelaide Show
An eight-year-old girl has died after falling from a ride at the Royal Adelaide Show.
The girl apparently fell from the Airmaxx 360 ride at around midday on Friday (12th September), with South Australian Police advising that she died after being taken to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital with critical injuries.
Police and SafeWork SA are investigating the incident, with the ride closed and under Police guard.
An eye witness told News Ltd that the girl had apparently slipped out of her seat while her harness appeared to have remained fixed.
Imported to Australia last year, the Airmaxx 360 ride was making its first appearance at the Show, and had been billed by Show organisers as "’for kids who want to scare mum and dad witless."
In 2000, 37 people were injured when the Spin Dragon ride collapsed in sideshow alley at the annual show.
