A woman attending a Christian festival in Oshkosk, WI, died recently after plunging about 45 feet from an amusement ride.
The incident occurred at the Lifest when the Air Glory ride -- a ride whose mechanism is similar to bungee-jumping - reportedly failed and the woman fell to the ground. Lifest is an annual Christian music festival that also features rides and sports.
Reports say two people went up in the ride; when the workers pulled the release apparently a snapping sound was heard. One person fell and the other remained swinging in the ride.
The woman who fell, whose name and age was not released by Oshkosk police, was pronounced dead at a local hospital several hours after the accident.
