18-year-old nearly killed at State Fair by projectile smart phone…

The Oklahoma State Fair is apparently as dangerous as ever.

According to a report by KFOR, an 18-year-old woman named Rebecca Gillespie suffered a traumatic brain injury at the Oklahoma State Fair this week after being hit in the head by a projectile cell phone that some moron dropped from the top of the Street Fighter 360 ride.

Because we live in a day and age where everything is recorded, KFOR obtained footage of the moment the smartphone dropped from the sky. Check this out:

Before I write anything else, I just want to say that we’re sending “get well” wishes Rebecca’s way. We hope she makes a full recovery, and at worst, only gains a new scar and a crazy State Fair story to tell her grandkids someday. If she hasn’t lawyered up already, she should contact our friends at Cunningham and Mears. They’ll sue the hell out of the Oklahoma State Fair, Street Fighter 360 operators, and the person who nearly killed her.

With that being said, what the fair f*ck?!?

As if the actual rickety rides at the State Fair weren’t dangerous enough, now you have to watch out for projectiles falling from such rides?! I remember the good old days when all you had to worry about when visiting the State Fair was getting kidnapped, stabbed, or bit by a rabid carnie.

Anyway, I guess this is the last weekend that Oklahoma State Fair is open. If you want to risk your life for an Indian taco or cinnamon roll, don’t forget to print our bingo cards, and watch for falling objects.

  1. Poor Rebecca is having her 15 minutes of fame because of someone’s stupid negligence – and isn’t even awake for it. Hope she’s OK real soon.

    Her mom seems happy to be in the spotlight in her place. Who invites a local TV news camera crew into their unconscious daughter’s hospital room?

    Thanks to the reporter, we know that the impact was like “a small missile or flying object hitting her at a high rate of speed.” Good to know.

      1. A rightfully justified lawsuit as I’ve ever seen.
