The state fire marshall's office will be at the Blue Bayou - Dixie Landin' amusement park today to inspect the ride from which a two-year-old boy fell Friday night.  

Witnesses say the boy fell anywhere from 15 to 25 feet from the "Over the Rainbow" ride, and hit the ground below.

The last word we got on the boy was Monday, when he was listed in serious condition.

The fire marshall's office tells us they've also requested information about who is and who's not supposed to be admitted to the ride from the manufacturer.

Park managers have already said the boy met all safety requirements for the attraction.
