iStock/Thinkstock(FRISCO, Texas) -- A girl fell about 20 feet to the ground from a zip line at the annual Freedom Fest in North Texas on Friday.

The victim, an eight-year-old, is listed in stable condition.

Festivalgoer Melissa Bradbury said, "All of a sudden I heard a commotion behind me and I turned around and people were just rushing to the zip line."

She added, "Paramedics were rushing in. The police department, the fire department. Everybody was kind of running around in a mad scramble to get to her."

The accident remains under investigation.
