New Orleans EMS says two riders in the Krewe of Thoth parade fell from the lower level of floats Sunday.
"Float rider is in stable condition," EMS sent out on Twitter. It happened on float 16B near St. Charles Ave. and Louisiana Avenue.
That victim was taken to University Medical Center.
A short time later it happened again. This time on float 33 in the same parade near Poydras and St. Charles Ave.
City regulations require riders to wear a protective tether. It is not clear if either rider was tethered or not.
EMS sent the first message at 3:30pm. The second came in just after 6:00pm.
It comes a day after a parade-goer was crushed to death under a float in the Endymion parade and five days after a parade-goer died after getting caught between the units of a tandem float and killed.
