A North Carolina fair worker was injured after he fell from the Ferris wheel he was repairing and it was all caught on video!

It all happened at the Central Carolina Fair in Greensboro Friday night.

Officials say one of the cars on the Ferris wheel became stuck with at least one young boy trapped inside.

The employee climbed up and maneuvered to dislodge the stuck car.

However, the worker lost his balance and fell to the ground.

The worker was transported to an area hospital for minor injuries and has since been released.

In a statement released Saturday, Central Carolina Fair says the gondola has been re-inspected and "state officials have approved the ride to be back in use today."
