JACKSON, N.J. (AP) — A boy is recovering after he was hit in the face by a bird while riding a roller coaster at an amusement park in New Jersey.

Park spokeswoman Kristen Siebeneicher tells the Asbury Park Press the boy was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries to his face and neck.
The 45-story Kingda Ka coaster, which reaches speeds up to 128 mph, was shut down for 30 minutes.
