OMG this is horrible, I took my kids (3 & 41/2 yr olds) took that carnival Saturday at noon when they opened. THey both rode the firetruck ride. My daughter (3yr.) was in the cage above the truck shooting the water and my son (41/2) was in the truck. I was worried that my daughter was going to unlock the gate bc it was easy to do. The cage goes up and down. This is just a sad situation. I am not from Baytown, but i was looking for something to do with the kids sat. bc my husband was at work and came across the carnival. I wasn't very impressed with it at all. THe motorcycle ride my daughter rode came off the tracks and she almost fell off. We left after that. Everyone has to be very careful at carnivals especially with little ones :).

No I didn't report it bc the guy running the ride seen what had happened and she didn't get hurt. I really don't think that the police would have done anything since nobody got hurt and the guy fixed the problem. We were like the first people there, he said we were his first customers of the day.

Everyone is human and we need to be more understanding of accidents. People want to point fingers and play name games but the reality is these people who run the carnival did not intentionally want the little kid to be hurt. Sometimes parents are not watching their children properly either.
Can we all just pray for all involved and hope pray the little child has a speedy recovery.

Yes I know, I am not actually blaming the workers at the carnival. It's really hard to watch over your children when they are on a ride bc you have to stay on the outside of the gate. I will b praying for the little boy... does anyone know how he is doing?

The guy who was supose to be watching this child was on drugs and he is not the boys father. Him and his drug addict wife stole that child.They started out baby sitting this child and wanted him so bad that they come up with a plan to still him.So they called the c p s and went through all the motions and stole that baby from her mother and dad.Now because of there call to the c p s there are five other children who the c p s took.
So when you rip someone off for there child God is going to spank you.And this is just the begenning of walt and pams spanking.
