Update: Ride being inspected after person falls from Ferris wheel at York Fair


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – UPDATE: According to the CEO of the York Fair Bryan Blair, ride inspectors inspected the Ferris wheel before two people were injured on it Friday night. State inspectors are there Saturday, trying to determine what exactly happened. No word on the two people’s conditions. Deggeller Attractions is the operator, and Chance Rides is the manufacturer of the Ferris wheel.


Two guests at the York Fair have been taken to the hospital after one fell from the Ferris wheel.

The incident occurred Friday at 8:07 p.m.

The scene has been secured.

“We can say one fell, one did not. From that point on, it’s still up to investigator’s situation,” York Fair CEO Bryan Blair said. “It appears one fell from one of the cars or tubs, but again, we are still early in this and he will have all the details tomorrow.” 

There is no word on either person’s condition.

All rides are inspected daily. The Ferris wheel will remain closed until cleared by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
