NBC NEWS -- A child is injured after falling from a ride at the Mississippi state fair Friday night.

Around 11 P.M. Friday night an unidentified seven-year-old boy fell more than 30 feet from the ride.

The child was rushed to the university medical center. The child's condition remains unknown at this time.

Witnesses at the scene Friday night say when the little boy dropped from the sky ride, it was pretty obvious he was in pretty bad shape.

The ride was closed immediately following the incident.

The sky ride was re-inspected by sky ride officials Saturday morning. The results of the ride inspection show that all safety lap bars on all cars are working properly, including the car the child was in and show no malfunction of the sky ride.

This is the first accident that has been reported on the ride at the fair.
