Shock in an amusement park in Rhineland-Palatinate: a woman falls off the roller coaster and dies.

Klotten – In a leisure park in the Mosel town of Klotten, a woman fell from a moving roller coaster on Saturday afternoon and was fatally injured. The 57-year-old from St. Wendel, Saarland, died on the spot despite attempts to revive him, as the police announced in the evening. The exact cause of the accident initially remained unclear. The accident resulted in a large deployment of rescue workers.

The accident in the wildlife and leisure park in Klotten, also known as “Klotti”, happened around 4:30 p.m., about an hour and a half before the park was supposed to close regularly on Saturday.

On its website, the park describes its “Klotti roller coaster” with a distance of 550 meters with the words “curvy, maximum gradient and up to 60 kilometers per hour fast”.

The park was opened in 1970 as a wildlife park on the Moselle heights near Klotten, according to the website. Since the 1990s, it has been expanded into a leisure and family park with new attractions. The roller coaster opened accordingly in 2004. dpa
