Ride malfunction sends five to hospital

November 3, 2004

Albany- A problem with an Albany Exchange Club Fair ride Wednesday night sent five people to the hospital with minor injuries.

They were riding the Himalayan when part of the ride malfunctioned. When that happened, the computer than runs the ride automatically stopped it.

"Whenever the malfunction happened, the ride stopped and we had about five people complain of whip lash," said Larry Griffin, Exchange Club President.

Again, none of those injuries is serious. The Himalayan was shut down until it can be repaired tomorrow.
