Three people, including a child, fell an estimated 15 feet from a Ferris wheel ride at a festival in Port Townsend, Washington, on Thursday.

Police said that the cabin with visitors of the attraction rolled over and fell out, people after was heard the gnashing and the fall of some object. Both of these victims have non-life-threatening injuries and were both up and walking.

He said this is the first time an accident like this has happened under their watch. At this time, Washington State's Labor and Industries department is investigating the incident.

The company has been in business since the 1950S - and hosts annual safety seminars attended by amusement ride operators from around the country. Spokesman Tim Church said L&I will determine if the company had proper permits, but because a worker was not injured, L&I takes a lesser role. "This was a tragic event and our thoughts and prayers are with all involved", said the statement.

But L&I did revoke Funtastic's permit to operate that ride until the problem is resolved and the state does another inspection. "Once again please keep the victims and their families in your prayers".
