A fair worker was injured while attempting to fix a malfunctioning ride at the Central Carolina Fair, according to Greensboro police. NC State inspectors were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Officials say one of the cars on the ride got stuck with at least one young boy trapped inside. The ride operator immediately stopped the ride and followed safety procedures to safely unload all passengers.An employee with Michael's Amusements suffered minor injuries last night while attempting to adjust the gondola.

The injured worker was transported by Guildford County EMS to a local hospital for treatment. The ride has since passed inspection and was put back into use yesterday.
