A 17-year-old boy was killed by a rollercoaster at the Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park in June. The South Carolina teen and a friend had climbed over two fences into a restricted area when he was struck by “Batman the Ride” and decapitated.
According to the police, the victim and his friend had entered the restricted area, labeled with an “Authorized Personnel Only”, sign as a shortcut to get back into the park after a break for lunch.
The first fatality from the Batman ride in Georgia occurred in 2002. A park employee was performing maintenance on a platform when he was kicked in the head by a girl on the front car of the ride.
