1 person injured on ride at New Jersey's Storybook Land theme park

A guest was injured on a ride at a New Jersey theme park Friday afternoon and required medical attention, park officials wrote on social media.

The person was injured while aboard the "Out on a Limb" ride at Storybook Land, The Press of Atlantic City reported. The condition of the guest was not immediately known, and the ride was shut down pending an investigation, park officials tweeted.

The incident comes less than a week after a 10-year-old girl died from a fall off a ride at the Deerfield Township Harvest Festival.

The "Out on a Limb" attraction at Storybook Land is a spinning, elevated swing ride, WCAU reported. Riders must be at least 3 feet tall to ride "with a responsible person," or stand 42 inches or higher to ride alone, according to the Storybook Land website.
