EL PASO, Texas – One teenage girl has been killed and another is injured after they were ejected from a whirling ride at an El Paso church carnival.
Police say the girls were at a parking lot carnival at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church when they were hurled from a spinning ride called “Sizzler” just before 7 p.m. Friday.
A spokeswoman for the El Paso Roman Catholic diocese says a 16-year-old girl hit a metal barricade.
She died at Del Sol Medical Center.
A 15-year-old girl was taken to University Medical Center with injuries not thought to be life-threatening.
A third girl who also was on the ride had hooked her arms on a safety bar and was not ejected.
Police Sgt. Enrique Carrillo says a cause hasn’t been determined.
