A girl was injured at the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair Friday night and airlifted to the hospital.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue transported the wounded child to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Medical Center. Witness video posted on Twitter shows a girl lying on her side near the “Hard Rock” ride as a woman leans over her.
“The guest attempted to exit the ride and fell,” a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition said in a statement.
