A young boy tumbled from a wooden roller coaster at a Pennsylvania theme park Thursday and was airlifted to a hospital with unknown injuries, a park spokesman said. The accident occurred on the Rollo Coaster ride at the Idlewild & Soak Zone in Ligonier, about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh, spokesman Jeff Croushore said at an afternoon news conference.
"He was talking, he was alert with his family," Croushore said of the boy. He could not confirm the extent of the child's injuries or his age. The victim was not identified, although a local fire station dispatcher earlier told NBC News the child was about 3 years old.
