A 38-year-old woman died at South Korea's Everland park yesterday. The woman was getting on the Magic Battle spinner ride when, reports say, she became frightened and tried to exit. The ride op did not see her and started the ride. The woman then was hit by one of the spinning ride vehicles.

The woman suffered a broken neck and died.

For more information, see The Korea Herald. The incident also is now listed on the Theme Park Insider Accident Watch.

Theme park safety's become a hot issue in South Korea this month, following last week's announcement that Lotte World will close for several months to repair and renovate rides and other facilities, following several incidents at that park.
