A first of its kind study finds a child is treated in an emergency room just about every other hour for injuries from amusement rides.

Researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio looked at cases of children injured on rides at amusement parks, fairs, malls and arcades.

They found nearly 93 thousand children were injured between 1990 and 2010.

Most suffered head and neck injuries.
