This is terrible news, I am very wary about rides at carnivals, just something isn't right about a ride that is just sitting on wooden or concrete blocks on uneven ground. Just some of these rides look like they are falling apart.

News here reported it was unrelated to the ride accident.

That's complete crap!

She suffered a traumatic brain injury that left her in a near vegetative state and had been in a long term care facility. Her organs slowly stopped functioning over the year. 100% due to the accident! It's similar to when people are horribly injured, and die 20 years later due to that injury. Sure it may be an unrelated organ or system that failed, but it's DUE to the original accident.

My heart sank when I saw the post title. I hoped for a second that it was actually old news, at least, but no. So devastating for all involved. She was completely innocent and only a child/barely an adult.
