An enjoyable day out at an amusement park for one family ended in horror as a three-year-old girl was thrown from a ride when staff “forgot” to secure her in her seat.
Amelia Horn, 27, was watching her three-year-old daughter Gracie on a ‘Race o Rama’ ride at Redcar resort in North Yorkshire, England, when she suddenly “flew into the air” as it rounded a corner.
"As the ride went really fast round a corner, my daughter flew into the air and smashed her body then head hard onto the floor and against the railings," Amelia wrote on Facebook after the incident.
The young mother said the woman controlling the ride didn't notice her daughter had fallen from the ride, and it wasn't until another onlooker stepped in to pull her daughter to safety that Gracie was saved.
"The young girl controlling the ride watched me run over the moving ride grab my daughter off the floor screaming her head off and crying her eyes out," Amelia wrote.
