DANIA BEACH, Fla. (July 2) - A 13-year-old girl was hospitalized after hitting her head while on a spinning teacup ride at an amusement park.

A 13-year-old girl hit her head Thursday while riding the Magic Teacup at Boomers amusement park near Fort Lauderdale, Fla. As of Monday, she was in intensive care.
Natashia West was injured Thursday on the Magic Teacup ride at Boomers, just south of Fort Lauderdale. She remained sedated in intensive care Monday with head injuries.

"All I want is for her to be the same little girl she was," said Donnie Jackson, her father.

The ride carries passengers inside round cups. At the center of each cup is a wheel riders can turn to control how fast it spins. It was not clear how Natashia hit her head or what part of the ride she hit it on.
