Boy hit, killed by roller coaster


cnnwire.blogs.cnn.com

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) — A teenager died Saturday after he was decapitated at the Six Flags Over Georgia theme park outside of Atlanta, authorities said.

The youth died after he scaled two 6-foot fences around the Batman roller coaster ride, said a statement issued by park spokeswoman Hela Sheth. He was struck by the coaster and killed, she said.

“We do not know why this person was intent on gaining access to this restricted area,” the statement said, noting that multiple signs are posted stating, “Danger Zone,” “Do Not Enter” and “Authorized Personnel Only.”

I found this really disturbing because I was at this same Six Flags less than 24 hours ago on the same ride. Hard to believe somebody would do something that dumb.

Latest reports are that a group of boys jumped a fence and were trying to grab people's feet.

Darwin award.

One less idiot to feed on the planet.

I have zero sympathy for anyone jumping not one but two fences and doing some thing so damn stupid.

Yeah, what a lamer! I guess he didn't get the heads up on how dangerous it is to be near the rails.

Next we will see in the news about his parents suing six flags...and winning. Now that will be really sad. Their son is an idiot and six flags has to pay the price.
