Seven hurt at amusement park

UTICA (AP) – Seven people were treated and released from a northern Illinois hospital after receiving minor injuries when an indoor amusement park ride malfunctioned.

Joseph Hook is acting general manager at Grizzly Jack’s Grand Bear Resort in Utica.

He says a mix of children and adults reported aches and pains on Christmas Eve after an unspecified malfunction of a tea cup ride in the indoor amusement park.

The amusement park that’s about 80 miles southwest of Chicago has about 10 rides.

Hook says the amusement park remains open Wednesday, although the tea cup ride is closed so state inspectors and the fire marshal can try to figure out what went wrong.
