Police said Anesto Newell was injured while dismantling a ride called "Vortex." The State Fair had two rides called "Vortex" and fair officials said the one involved in Monday's incident was not the same one involved in last week's incident that injured five people.

Newell had been in critical condition while at WakeMed until his upgrade Tuesday.
