Carnival worker injured
(Tuesday, October 26, 2004) - A 64-year-old carnival worker was injured as he was working to dismantle a roller coaster called the Racing Coaster at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh, North Carolina. Reports indicate that he was struck by a 15-foot-long steel beam -- one of about 100 beams which form the support structure of the ride, called the Racing Coaster. The victim is an employee of Reithoffer Shows of Gibsonton, Florida. He suffered a broken leg or ankle and lacerations to his scalp.
The North Carolina Department of Labor is investigating the accident.

Every thing I have found only gives the man's age, without a name.

His name is Juan. He was one of our Mexican workers. It is a shame what happened and we are waiting for him to get better. Going thru therapy for his ankle. Everything else is ok.
