(TELEGRAPH) — A nine-year-old girl escaped with severe bruising after she was flung 15ft through the air after coming off a white-knuckle fairground ride spinning at 50mph.

Yasmin Vickery was rushed to hospital after she slammed into a metal safety barrier when she was catapulted out of the stomach-churning ride in front of her mother Kim.

The youngster was treated for a suspected broken neck following the accident on November 3 but incredibly escaped with severe bruising.
