A three-year-old girl was left with cuts and bruises after her mum claims she was thrown from from a fairground ride and narrowly missed being struck by revolving cars.

Gracie Horn suffered cuts and bruises after she fell from the Race O Rama on Redcar seafront, Gazette Live reported.

Mum Amelia, 27, claims the tot narrowly missed being hit by revolving cars on the ride, which she says could have killed her.

But thankfully Gracie was pulled to safety by a passing woman and avoided any serious injuries.

She said: “Gracie was in one of the cars with her cousin and as it went round a corner she flew out and was laying on the floor.

“The staff member who was running the ride didn’t even notice what had happened.

“Luckily a lady put her hand through the railings and pulled her to safety before one of the cars hit Gracie.

“I jumped over the railings while the ride was still going and grabbed her.

“The staff member was crying after realising what happened and said she forgot to secure the kids with a seatbelt.”

Gracie was left with a few cuts, bruises and a swollen foot after allegedly being thrown out of the car.

Amelia added: “If it wasn’t for the lady she could have been killed.

“I was crying my eyes out thinking about what could have happened, it was so dangerous.

“The manager then told us that Gracie could have as many free goes on the ride as she wanted, which is ridiculous as I’d never let her go on it again.

“I wish I had the number of the lady who helped Gracie as I’d like to thank her for what she did.”
