A 5 year old boy's leg was seriously injured at Coney Island when he jumped from a moving ride.

The child, whose name was not released, was riding the Sea Serpent Roller Coaster at Deno's Wonderwheel and Amusement Park. According to reports, the boy crawled under the lap retaining and jumped off of the moving coaster. The boys leg got caught between the car and the track. The child's older sister, who was around 7, also suffered a leg injury as well.

According to Dennis Vourderis, vice president of the park, "A young rider on the Serpent coaster who met the height requirement unfortunately crawled under the lap retaining bar tonight, and jumped off the ride before it had stopped. The ride is an inspected, approved ride and there has never been an incident before in its 15-year history here at Coney."
