NJ amusement park ride partially collapses; 5 hurt
Ride partially collapses at NJ amusement park, sending teen to hospital and injuring 4 others
By The Associated Press

WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP) ' Authorities say five people were injured when a ride partially collapsed at a New Jersey amusement park where a girl fell to her death from a Ferris wheel in June.

Wildwood police say the center mast snapped on the sea dragon ride Friday night. It's a pirate ship that swings riders back and forth high into the air. It wasn't immediately clear what caused the mast to break.

Officials say a teenager was sent to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Four others were treated at the scene for minor injuries.



The collapse was the second serious accident at the Morey's Mariner's Landing Pier this summer. An 11-year-old girl died in June after falling from a Ferris wheel.

Messages seeking comment were left Saturday for a park spokeswoman.
