(COUNCIL BLUFFS) A Council Bluffs boy was injured on a carnival ride Friday night.
The Council Bluffs Police Department says the incident occurred in Bayliss Park during the carnival that occurs each year as part of Celebrate CB week. Five year old Trace Harman was on a ride called the Monster Truck Ride, which is a carousel owned by a private company. Trace was belted in one of the cars, along with his four year old brother Van and a friend, eight year old Opal Sund. For unknown reasons, the car flipped upside down as it was going up the incline of the track, striking the car in front of them. The car came loose from its hoist.
Trace was transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center with head injuries. Trace was listed in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries. Van and Opal received minor injuries and were treated and released.
A representative from the State of Iowa, Department of Elevator and Amusement Park Rides, was notified for inspection of the incident. The investigation is ongoing.
