Child falls from Pennsylvania roller coaster


An accident has occurred at Idlewild Park in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, where a child reportedly fell off a roller coaster.

According to reports, a Westmoreland County 911 dispatcher said the boy fell from the coaster.

Park spokesman Jeff Croushore said he couldn't say whether the ride malfunctioned.

The accident comes only days after 10-year-old Caleb Schwab was decapitated on a water slide in Kansas City.

As for previous incidents at the park, Channel 11 News uncovered that a lawsuit was filed against Idlewild after a woman claimed she was hurt on the Wild Mouse roller coaster in 2009.

The spokesman also said the Rollo Coaster's highest point is 40 feet and that its speed ranges between 10 and 25 miles per hour.

The six-year-old remains in critical condition after suffering brain injuries. Officials said the auto dumped the children due to a "mechanical problem".

Ken Martin, a safety expert, says they are calling for stricter, uniform federal regulations on amusement park rides.

This tragedy is the third major incident regarding amusement parks in the United States. Two other girls, ages 10 and 16, were also injured, said ABC.

The accident happened on a ride called "Rollo Coaster", which was built in 1938 and does not have seat belts.

The Schlitterbahn WaterPark reopened Wednesday, save for a portion containing the raft ride.

The Pennsylvania Amusement Ride Safety Division has shut down the attraction, and an investigation has been opened, said supervisor Joseph Filoromo.

"Our thoughts are with the child involved in this incident". There are almost 1,650 inspectors of the Department that monitor more than 10,200 rides in the state, and they are also responsible for auditing rides and local inspectors.

Sources said the boy suffered head and chest wounds, the station reported.
