Bridlington Log flume accident girl released from hospital

THE four-year-old girl who was thrown from the log flume ride at Bridlington’s seafront fair has been released from Hull Royal Infirmary today (Wednesday August 31).

Her 58-year-old grandmother, who suffered “severe” leg injuries remains at Hull Royal Infirmary where her condition was described as “comfortable and improving”.

Both victims were taken to hospital on Sunday afternoon when they were apparently “flipped out” of the Jungle River ride after a car stopped unexpectedly on a steep descent toward a water pool.

The girl, 4, was originally taken to Scarborough Hospital but moved to Hull on Monday.

A Health and Safety Executive investigation into the cause of the accident began on Tuesday.
