13 children injured after ride accident at festival
Norwalk, Connecticut (CNN/WSYR-TV) - 13 children were hurt Sunday on a swing ride at a festival in Connecticut.
Most of the injuries were minor but at least two children appeared to be seriously injured and were taken to area hospitals.
Police said the ride apparently lost power, causing the children and the swings to drop suddenly.
All rides at the Oyster Festival were closed following the accident but reopened after being inspected.
The owner of the company that owns the swing ride said it was inspected by state officials Friday and was considered safe.
Authorities are investigating what could have caused the accident.
