rescued a stranded carnival ride passenger who was stuck atop a malfunctioning ride at the Sunday evening.
"A ride did malfunction causing a young lady to be assisted by CFD off the ride," Canton Fire Chief Charles Doody said tonight. "She was transported to an area hospital as a precaution."
The "Roll a Plane" ride was shut down after the evening incident and a sign on the ride notified carnival-goers that the ride was closed.
Doody said the "state inspector has been notified and will be responding tomorrow (Monday) to determine the cause of the problem."
Witness Falasha Harrison of Hyde Park attended the carnival for the first time with her family. She snapped photos of the event as firefighters arrived on scene and used their ladder to assist the youngster off the ride.
Harrison said the ride was stuck for about an hour and it looked like three children were stuck atop the ride.
