The parade was paused while the woman was being treated but the carriage she fell from continued rolling, according to The Advocate | Times-Picayune.

"We were questioning if she was real. She looked like a mannequin," said Emilio Vess of Belle Chasse. "She hit head-first. I ran up telling the guy to stop. The wooden wheel barely missed her head. Her hair was in the wheel."
