GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) _ Officials say a woman has been injured after leaping onto an inflated bag at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island.

The fair said in a news release that the woman was hurt around 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the Stunt Jump attraction. The huge bag used is similar to those used in movie stunts.

The fair said the 45-year-old woman didn’t hold her legs as she was instructed, so she bounced from the bag onto the ground, dislocating a hip and shoulder. She was taken to a hospital for treatment. State Fair Executive Director Joseph McDermott says the incident is being investigated.
