A 10-year-old girl died Saturday after being thrown from a spinning carnival ride at the Deerfield Township Harvest Festival, New Jersey State Police say.
The tragedy occurred at the annual Deerfield Township Harvest Festival on a ride called "Extreme" that turns clusters of rotating cars from a central arm. Just after 6 p.m., she was ejected and sustained serious injuries. She was airlifted to Cooper University Hospital and pronounced dead at 7:20 p.m.
An investigation into how the accident happened is ongoing, according to a press released posted by N.J. State Police. Sunday's parade was canceled, but other scheduled events are continuing. The cause and circumstances remain under investigation, and there is no additional information available.
Authorities are investigating the incident but are not identifying the victim.
Skelly's Amusements, the company that operates rides at the festival, voluntarily shut down the attractions Sunday.

He said Yovanovitch had been "a model diplomat and deserves better than the shabby treatment she received from the president and the Secretary of State".
"We don't have it in our heart", the statement read.
"There was an accident at the Harvest Festival yesterday". We have learned from the State Police that the young person involved in the accident has succumbed to her injuries.
Festival organizers say rides and games are temporarily closed pending a state inspection of rides.
Skelly's earlier said that, based on the preliminary investigations, it had been "cleared to operate the remaining rides" at the festival.
