Woman Falls from Zipper

Posted: Updated:

Last night, after a typical ride on the Zipper came to an end, a woman fell several feet while exiting the ride.

Witnesses say she was unconscious after the fall, though this has not been confirmed. John Hanschen, president of the Mighty Thomas Carnival tells FOX Montana this was a normal unloading of the ride, and one of the two passengers in the same car of the injured woman safely walked out of the ride, and it is unclear why the second passenger fell.     

Hanschen says after a series of checks, the Zipper is now back up and running as of 1:30 Wednesday.

Both Hanschen, and Sheriff Bob Edwards say in order to avoid these types of incidents in the future, it's important to be a vigilant rider.   Be attentive. If something doesn't seem right, don't hesitate to notify those operating the ride.
