roller-coasterThis weekend, a Memphis high school student who was aged about 17 died after she was riding a roller coaster.

 

The deceased had gone to a restaurant known as Incredible Pizza and it was here that she was enjoying a ride in a roller coaster. The teenager was attending a church youth group trip.

 

Her name is Caitlin Williams.

 

A member of the church started administering CPR to the teenage girl. However, she was pronounced dead. Shane McGivney, the Pastor said that Williams had died at the end of what seemed to be quite a joyful occasion.

 

He then added that though they did not know what had happened during her ride at the roller coaster, but then he feels that the girl might have been suffering from a physical condition that might have manifested itself. This might have stopped her breathing that made things tough for her.

 

But McGivney said that the members of the church do not believe that the death of Williams is associated to the roller coaster ride.

 

He said that he is not sure of any kind of trauma that might have affected the deceased teenager. He feels that the girl slowed down all of a sudden, and added that he has been waiting for the report of the medical examiner.
