LIGONIER, Pa. (AP) — A boy has fallen from a wooden roller coaster at a Pennsylvania amusement park and is hospitalized.

A spokesman for Idlewild and SoakZone amusement park near Ligonier says the boy was on the ride with his brother Thursday afternoon when he fell. His age wasn’t released.

A Westmoreland County emergency dispatcher says the boy was conscious and airlifted to a hospital.

Park spokesman Jeff Croushore says he can’t say whether the ride malfunctioned.

Hospital spokesman Marc Lukasiak says he can’t release any information about the boy’s condition.

The Rollo Coaster opened in 1938 and takes riders up, down and around a wooded hillside. It doesn’t require seat belts.

The fall comes four days after a 10-year-old boy was decapitated as he rode a waterslide at a Kansas water park.
