WILDWOOD, N.J — A 13-year-old girl was hit in the face by a seagull while riding an amusement park ride in New Jersey.

Kiley Holman was celebrating her friend’s birthday at Morey’s Piers in Wildwood when she was struck and left with minor injuries, NJ Advance Media reported. The girls were just seconds into their ride on the SlingShot when the bird struck her.
