Boy dies after falling from 'Adrenalin Max' ride in amusement park
BODRUMAn 11-year-old boy has died after falling from an amusement park ride in a popular Turkish resort in the southwestern province of Muğla.
Kerem Kutlu fell from the Adrenalin Max ride at an amusement park in Bodrum on late Aug. 22 after the safety harness failed, according to Doğan News Agency.
Doctors at Bodrum State Hospital couldn't return Kutlu to life, after his heart stopped at the scene soon after he fell down. His mother moved to tears at the park as she begged the medics to "try it once again."
Police briefly detained the ride's operator and shut down the amusement park, as investigation continues.
The maximum height that a rider can reach on the Adrenalin Max is 15 meters, while Kutlu plunged to his death from five meters, according to a witness.
