Oshkosh, Wis. – A Wisconsin teenager died Saturday while on a ride at Christian rock festival Lifest.
Winnebago County Deputy Coroner Chuck Hable said the ride involves a crane hoisting up a person or people in a sling, and at the top the person inside pulls a ripcord.
That drops the person or people and they swing back and forth. But he said for some reason after the cord was pulled, she fell to the ground.
Officials were not sure when the ride last was inspected. The incident was being investigated by state officials, police and event staff.
