Storybook Land in Egg Harbor Township decorates for Christmas every year.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — A guest was injured on a ride at Storybook Land on Friday and required medical attention, the amusement park said on social media.

The incident occurred shortly after noon on the Out on a Limb swing ride, police said.

The ride was closed pending inspection by the state Department of Community Affairs, and the incident is under investigation, police said, adding Storybook Land officials are cooperating with authorities.

An employee at the 64-year-old amusement park said no additional details will be released.

The injury comes less than a week after a 10-year-old girl died after being ejected from a ride at the Harvest Festival in Deerfield Township.

Storybook Land collected cleaning supplies for Hurricane Harvey relief, Monday, Sept. 4. The items were collected by Good Sheppard United Methodist Church and will be sent to the United Methodist Committee on Relief. The committee will make "flood buckets," which are sent to areas affected by major flooding and storm damage. Storybook Land collected enough donations to make about 30 buckets for the relief fund.
