Employee killed by roller coaster at Legoland Denmark

A Legoland Denmark employee died yesterday after a roller coaster car struck her at the Billund theme park.

I've not yet found details on which ride killed the 21-year-old woman, but reports from the park say that she jumped a security fence to retrieve a customer's wallet, which would lead me to suspect that the employee was not trained on the attraction. (I can't image that any employee trained on a roller coaster ever would jump a ride fence while the coaster was in operation.)

The park is open, but the ride closed as police investigate.

What a shame...to loose a life over a wallet...seems that employee was not trained on SAFETY 1st.
