A carnival worker was hospitalized on Wednesday after falling from a ride in Broward County.
Local10.com reports that bystanders caught the incident on video as the worker hung from the bottom of the Skyscreamer ride.
Apparently, the incident occurred when the victim was on top of the crane and another worker mistakingly pushed a button causing machinery to fall on the victim’s arm. This in turn caused the victim to fall.
