An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery after her hair became caught in a carnival ride and part of her scalp was ripped off. Elizabeth Gilreath was on the King's Crown rider at a Cinco de Mayo festival in Omaha, Nebraska, when her hair became tangled in the mechanism. Her mother, Virginia Cooksey, told the Omaha World-Herald newspaper she did not suffer any fractures or brain trauma, but could have vision problems or need more surgery.
The little girl, who was on the ride with a friend, fell out of her seat when her hair got trapped, her mother told the newspaper. She has since undergone a number of surgeries to repair her scalp and emergency surgery after suffering a blood clot.
