WVLT/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday August 16, 2016

A 6-year-old who fell 40 feet from a Ferris wheel at the Greene County Fair was downgraded to stable condition Tuesday morning. The accident happened Monday, August 8.

WVLT reports that when Briley Reynolds was first sent to Niswonger Children's Hospital in Johnson City, she was in critical condition. She suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Her 10-year-old sister, Kayla Reynolds, needed emergency care for a broken bone in her forearm. She said she was feeling better and is not in any pain.

A 16-year-old, who was unrelated to Kayla and Briley, was hurt in the same accident. That teen's injuries are unknown. She originally was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but she improved through the night. She's now in stable condition.

Investigators say a mechanical error caused the ride to malfunction and the girls to fall.

According to WVLT, police are waiting on a report from the state to know if there will be criminal charges. The report must show there was gross negligence in the operation of the Ferris wheel to continue with criminal charges.
