Some bad news out of a park a group of us just visited about 6 weeks ago, as a 57 year-old woman reportedly fell from the Heiße Fahrt coaster and died.

Here's the best English-language source I could find:

Woman falls from roller coaster and dies

By Annie Dabb • 07 August 2022 • 11:51

 

On Saturday afternoon, a woman died in a theme park in the Klotten, Mosela, after falling from a moving roller coaster. The woman died after several attempts to revive her. No one knows the cause of the accident. 

“On Sunday 7th August Klotti Park will close permanently” reads the webpage of Klotten theme park in Mosel. The park originally opened in 1970 as a wildlife park in the heights of Mosela. 

A 57 year old woman from Sarre fell from a moving roller coaster and suffered fatal injuries. The attempts to revive her were unsuccessful. A rescue helicopter arrived along with voluntary firefighters to help, but nothing more could be done for her. 

The roller coaster track is 532 metres in length and reaches a height of 17.5 metres. The theme park’s website advises that it “is not for cowards”.

The rollercoaster track has “many curves, a steep incline and speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour, that can take your breath away and make your heart beat out of place.” 

Through the night, the police could say little at the time of the accident and further investigations have been unable to confirm the cause of the accident so far. It is unknown whether it was due to a technical fault, ride negligence, or fatal carelessness.

There is also speculation around whether the woman’s death was due to her injuries or a natural cause like a heart attack, as reported by welt.de

Wait...so did she fall out of the ride or have a heart attack? Hopefully we get more info soon.

That bit about not being sure what killed her has me kinda... ugh. Like, okay, so what if she did have a heart attack on the ride? That couldn't be the cause of her falling out of a freaking roller coaster! So, yeah, could her literal physical cause of death be a heart attack? Sure, but that doesn't erase the fact that a person got thrown out of a roller coaster.

Also, here's a newer article that details what part of the coaster the accident happened on. I've run it through Google Translate, so the URL will take you to the English translation.

It is sad that they need to permanently close the park.  This looks like a nice bobsled coaster.

 

 

I think it’s just a bad translation. They’re not permanently closing. Here’s from their website today:

Park is already reopen.  They even got permission to reopen the coaster but are having another agency double check just to be super safe.

Dear guests,

Starting tomorrow, August 9th, 2022 , we will reopen our KLOTTI Park.

Authorities are still investigating how the accident happened. Meanwhile, the on-site investigations have been completed and the roller coaster affected by the accident was immediately released for re-operation. Nevertheless, we decided to have the system checked again by the TÜV as a precaution. Therefore, the roller coaster will remain temporarily closed.

We are still very affected and it will be difficult for us to return to everyday life. Our thoughts are with the relatives, we wish them a lot of strength and confidence in these difficult times.

Your KLOTTI team
