Two Men Climb Up Humpty Dumpty, Break Down His WallKevin Hays Salem-News.com
All the King's horses and all the King's men may not be able to put Humpty back together again.
(TURNER, Ore. ) - It was a sad day in the fifty year history of the Enchanted Forest theme park just east of Salem.
The popular Humpty Dumpty figure that has been one of the parks most popular attractions fell from his brick wall on Saturday. Enchanted Forest officials have not said if they will put Humpty Dumpty back together again, or just make a new one.
Witnesses told park employees that two adult men tried to climb up on the wall with Humpty Dumpty, and accidentally pulled the wall and Humpty down.
Humpty is like a part of our family, and original art by Roger. It's true he's old, built before 1970, but he was still very special to us and not a family member we were looking to replace Roger Tofte said in a statement on Facebook.
Humpty Dumpty is a character in an English nursery rhyme, and was popularized in the United States by actor George L. Fox. The earliest known version was published in Samuel Arnold's Juvenile Amusements in 1797. The first recorded versions of the rhyme date from late eighteenth century in England.
