A boy fell from a ride at an amusement park. He was nine years old. He was hurt.

People who saw it happen said the boy flew out of the car. Somehow he slipped under the safety bar. He landed in some bushes.

The boy got some cuts and bruises. He was taken to the hospital. Doctors kept him there for a couple of days to make sure he was okay.

Workers at the amusement park were shocked. They did not know how the boy slipped out. They could not find any problems with the ride.

People from a television station talked to parents that were leaving the park. Most of them said that workers at the park tried very hard to make things safe. They do not know how this could have happened.
