EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Two teenagers are recovering after being injured when they fell out of a carnival ride at a West Texas church bazaar.

Police in El Paso say the “Sidewinder” - a swinging pendulum ride with two gondolas at each end - was in motion Sunday night at the Saint Anthony’s Bazaar when a door came open and the teenagers fell to the ground.

The male and female, both 13 years old, were taken to University Medical Center in El Paso. Police say their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Authorities say no charges have been filed and the incident remains under investigation.
