An air ambulance rushed to a fairground after a child was injured in a suspected ride malfunction.
Emergency services were called to Platt Fields park in Fallowfield, South Manchester, on Sunday following reports the child received minor injuries.
Onlookers watched as it landed on a grassed area beside the fairground, which has had its run extended until May 2.
Vehicles from Greater Manchester Police were also called to the incident, as well as paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service.
Manchester City Council confirmed a child sustained minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene. The ride in question was also closed down throughout the day on Monday for checks to be carried out by an independent inspector instructed by the council.
The ride will be visited again for more checks on Tuesday, reports the Manchester Evening News.
It's understood that the ride had recently been certified as meeting safety standards following a routine inspection back in March and was also insured.
