A five-year-old boy suffered "multiple traumas" after falling off the Sea Serpent children's roller coaster in Coney Island Wednesday evening, according to the FDNY. My Fox NY reports that the boy crawled under the lap bar before the ride was finished and he fell between the cars onto the track below.
The young boy apparently met the height requirement for the ride at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at West 12th street. According to the New York Daily News, the boy's leg was mangled when it got caught between the track and the car. He was reportedly conscious when taken to Bellevue Hospital.
The boy's 7-year-old sister was also on the ride, but it's unclear if she suffered any injuries. The Daily News reports that officials are currently investigating to see if the equipment was to blame for the accident.
