According to Sin Chew Daily, the girl's parents brought her to a funfair at Hutan Melintang on Sunday, 22 September.

The girl reportedly got into a carriage of the Ferris wheel alone and the ride began moving although her carriage door was not closed.

Upon realising this, her parents demanded for the ride to be stopped.

The carriage door then flung open and the girl fell five metres from the top of the machine

Her uncle who was present during the incident said, "The Ferris wheel stopped moving but my niece was already halfway through the rotation. She fell before the wheel could be lowered."
