COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - State inspectors were at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds early Thursday morning after six people received minor injuries when a ride malfunctioned on the fair's opening night.
Fair spokesman Gary Goodman said five people on the Bonzai ride were injured Wednesday night. As passengers were being swung back and forth, the footrest under one of the seats came loose and dropped down. The malfunction shot pieces of metal into a group of people on the Banzai ride, and one who was seated on the adjacent Wave Swinger ride.
Two people received bumps and bruises leaving the ride, according to Goodman. Three people received scratches from metal fragments, and one person on Wave Swinger was hit in the arm by a piece of metal.
All six were treated at the fair's first aid center and were released. Goodman said no one had to be taken to the hospital.
Banzai was still shut down Thursday as state and fair inspectors worked to fix the problem and make sure the ride is safe before it's reopened. Goodman said officials will not re-open the ride until they're absolutely sure it is safe. "We're going to take every precaution we possibly can," said Goodman.
