A 45-year-old man died of what authorities have called an apparent heart attack after losing consciousness while riding Goliath at Six Flags Over Georgia yesterday afternoon. No ID on the victim yet. Park officials closed the ride for inspection, then reported that it was functioning normally.Tweet
And on Monday, an 11-year-old girl was hospitalized for unspecified injuries after a freak accident on the Tornado roller coaster at Adventureland in Altoona, Iowa. The coaster hit a board that had been left near the track by maintenance personnel. Two others were treated for more minor injuries at the scene.
