A brand new report revealed the obvious explanation for a tragic accident at a Colorado theme park earlier this month.
A younger woman died after falling from a trip at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park throughout Labor Day weekend. After an investigation into the incident, state officers have decided that she had not been correctly secured into the trip.
The Colorado Division of Oil and Public Safety launched a report detailing the incident, which occurred Sept. 5. The accident occurred round 7:15 that night on the Haunted Mine Drop trip.
Based on the report, a 6-year-old woman named Wongel Estifanos fell from the trip and suffered deadly accidents. The attraction carries six passengers at a time and drops down a shaft 110 toes into the bottom.
The sufferer was not correctly secured into her seat. The trip’s operators apparently didn’t discover that she was sitting on prime of her seatbelts as an alternative of being correctly strapped in. When the trip’s system alerted the operators to the problem, they reportedly took “a number of incorrect steps” and dispatched the trip after resetting the seatbelt displays.
State officers inspected the trip a number of days after the incident and decided that the trip itself was working appropriately.
The report concludes that the trip’s operators didn’t correctly put together the trip earlier than permitting passengers to board. The seat belts had apparently been buckled throughout a earlier trip when the seat was empty and weren’t unbuckled after that trip returned to the station.
Additionally they violated the Amusement Trip and Gadgets Laws by not following the correct working procedures.
The report additionally states that the trip’s working guide didn’t correctly instruct the operators on easy methods to tackle errors.
