  • Two adults, one child hospitalized after falling from Ferris wheel

Talking to one Rhody organizer who had been attending Rhody Festivals for 40 years, Beezley said, "She couldn't remember another incident like this".

The 59-year-old woman was air lifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where she was listed in critical but stable condition.

The victims fell onto the metal base at the bottom of the ride, according to East Jefferson Fire Department spokesman Bill Beezley. Any detailed inquiries regarding the incident need to be directed to the above mentioned agencies.

Police were told the ride made a grinding sound and something appeared to fall out.

They asked for prayers for the victims and everyone involved in the accident. At which point, the cart tipped and the passengers fell, although they attempted to hold on to the cart. "Once again please keep the victims and their families in your prayers".

The Ferris wheel had been moving in a counter clockwise rotation, and the affected cart had just come around the top of the ride near the "8 o'clock" rotation of the wheel, when the accident occurred, she said.

For KIRO 7 at 11, we're working to learn exactly what happened. Another person refused treatment.

The injuries took place during the Rhododendron Festival in Port Townsend, Wash.

Officials with the Labor and Industries Department will begin their investigation of the scene Friday morning.

The Ferris Wheel was shut down following the incident, but the carnival's other rides continued to operate. It honors the Washington State flower with its festival and scholarships.
