Three people fell from a Port Townsend, Wash. Ferris wheel.

Fire officials say the victims -- a 70-year-old woman, a woman in her 40s and a 6-year-old boy -- were in the same cart that abruptly flipped, sending them into the air and then down 15 feet.

They landed on metal casing that supports the Ferris wheel on the ground.

The victims were airlifted to a Seattle hospital.
