An 11-year-old Florida girl's day at the carnival ended in terror when she fell 18 feet off a rock wall. The frightening incident was caught on camera by her dad.

Emily Davis' father, Jeff, was recording her climb up the wall outside of Marlins Park in Miami on Saturday, but he could only helplessly watch as a cable snapped. His daughter plummeted 18 feet and crashed to the ground.

Emily suffered a concussion and remains hospitalized. She has to wear a collar, but she is able to move her arms and legs and speak.

The rock-climbing wall has been shut down for a safety inspection.
