Woman Almost Falls Off Ferris Wheel at Coachella
A unidentified woman almost fell from the Ferris Wheel on the Coachella grounds Friday night. Details are scant, but it appears she was saved by someone else on the ride.
We hustled over to the site after hearing about the incident and talked to a couple event people in yellow shirts. The first, an older gentleman, paused after we asked if someone had jumped. He said he had no idea what we were talking about before walking away.
The second, a young lady, said she'd heard it was a woman who was dancing and almost toppled out of the car, a story that makes it seem less like an attempted suicide than a case of partying just a little too hard.
A reporter for the L.A. Times talked to a few officials, but details are still sparse. We'll let you know what develops.
