Summer theme park death toll rises, again
Written by Robert Niles
By my count, the number of people who died this season on or during attractions is up to seven now.Tweet
The latest was a 10-year-old girl with a heart condition at Illinois' Six Flags Great America, last night.
Of the seven deaths, two were of employees. All the remaining five guest deaths appear to have been from pre-existing medical conditions.
