Starfish Ride Accident Critically Injures Girl

Sponsored by:

A four-year-old girl fell from the Starfish ride at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo yesterday and was critically injured. Jeff Jouett is a spokesman for the park. He says the girl fell around noon while the ride was in motion. She was taken to Children´s Hospital in Oakland. The ride is closed and awaiting state inspection. The girl, who was aboard Starfish with her mother, met the ride´s height requirement.

It´s not the first accident on Starfish. Jouett says a 41-year-old woman was injured on the same ride last May and has sued the park and the ride´s maker.
