Young Girl Narrowly Escapes Bungee Cord Malfunction at Mid Rivers Mall
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A young girl narrowly escaped an
amusement ride accident at the Mid Rivers Mall in St. Peters on July 31. A bungee cord malfunctioned,
snapping apart while the young girl was in the air. Witnesses describe
the chaotic scene, saying the young girl went fly towards the food court
and the second bungee cord pulled her back to safety. Thankfully, the
young girl was not seriously injured. It is unclear if she received medical
treatment for minor injuries. Witnesses claim the bungee cord just ripped
in half, snapping into two. The accident has many parents concerned with
the bungee trampoline ride such as safety protocols and inspections. According
to officials, the bungee trampoline ride must be inspected annually in
order to obtain a permit. The Missouri Department of Safety has stated
they will be investigating the incident. The bungee trampoline ride is
operating once again with a replaced bungee cord.
