Child injured on amusement park ride in Egg Harbor Township

Posted: Updated:

A ride was closed after a child was injured on it in Egg Harbor Township, amusement park officials say.

According to a post on Storybook Land's Facebook page, the ride was called "Out on a Limb," and it spun riders on a swing.

Officials say the child was treated and released from the hospital.

This incident happened just a day after 10-year-old Hailey McMullen was killed while on a carnival ride. Officials say the girl, from Deerfield Township, was thrown from a ride called "Xtreme."

The state shut down the ride, along with similar rides, to investigate.
