Humpty Dumpty Takes Big Fall; Shatters

(CNN) SALEM, Ore. — The saying “Humpty Dumpty took a big fall” is true this morning. The Humpty Dumpty sculpture at the Enchanted Forest in Salem fell from its perch this weekend when two visitors tried to climb the wall. The visitors were trying to take a picture with the well-known exhibit and Humpty accidentally fell to the ground and shattered.

The cement sculpture was made by the Park’s creator artist Roger Tofte and had been there since the Forest opened in 1971. Now, 84 years old, Tofte said he’ll try and put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

“It’s going to take a few hours to start from scratch again and try and duplicate what I had,” said Tofte. “That’s the problem it’s gonna be to make it like it was before and I’m 84, I hope I still have some creative juices left.”

The two men who knocked the sculpture off the wall have offered to pay for the repairs.
