Boy injured in Camelot ride horror
Serious injuries have happened to a 12-year-old boy after he fell from a ride at Camelot theme park.
It all happened on Tuesday when the boy fell from Excalibur 2 at the Chorley park at 1pm. The boy is yet to be identified.
The injuries are fortunately not life-threatening and the boy is being treated at Wigan Royal Infirmary.
Roy Page, chief executive of Knights Leisure Limited, operators of Camelot, said, “At this stage, we do not know the full extent of the injuries sustained and our thoughts are with the young boy and his family. Until we have more information to hand, it would be inappropriate to make any further comment.”
There has been an inquiry set to find out the possible cause of this and information about the fall has been sent to the Health and Safety Executive, HSE.
Various eye-witnesses have given their statements.
The boy after having a fall was seen hanging in the air from the ride which is suppose to be one of the most popular rides at Camelot.
According to a HSE spokesman, the park is being visited by various inspectors as a part of a joint investigation with the police.
