A fun-ride turned into a nightmare for a three-year-old boy, as he fell from a roller-coaster inside a theme park at Pennsylvania, US. The boy had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital after he fell from the ride on 11th August, Thursday.

 

 

The unfortunate kid was on a trip to the Idlewild and SoakZone amusement park with his family. He, along with his brother, was riding the ‘Rollo Coaster’, which did not require any seat-belt during the ride. The three-year-old became unconscious after falling from the wooden roller coaster.

 

 

Jeff Croushore, the spokesperson for the Idlewild and SoakZone theme park could not tell, whether the coaster had any malfunction or not.

 

The coaster used to take the thrill seekers “up and down along a wooded hillside”.

 

 

The unconscious kid had to be airlifted in a helicopter to the nearby Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh.

 

 

Joseph Filoromo, the supervisor of the Pennsylvania Amusement Ride Safety Division, stated that they closed down the coaster after the incident to investigate furthermore.

 

 

The IdleWild & SoakZone issued a formal statement, which stated that their thoughts and concerns are with the injured boy and his family.
