An investigation is under way after a five-year-old boy fell from a carnival ride in Rye.

WorkSafe Victoria is conducting the investigation into the incident, where the child was seriously injured on the ‘Cha Cha’ ride.

It is thought that the ride may have been used by carnival workers and their families after the carnival had closed.

WorkSafe was at the scene and issued a notice to ensure it was not disturbed so that ongoing investigations could be carried out.

Inquiries will focus on a number of issues, in particular the height requirements for riders, to determine if all safety procedures had been followed.

As the investigation is ongoing, WorkSafe will not comment further.
