  • Two women and a boy were hurt after they fell 15 feet from a Ferris wheel in Port Townsend

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".
