Written by Robert Niles
For the second time in three years, someone has died on the Mind Scrambler at Playland Amusement Park in Rye, New York.Tweet
This time it was a park employee who was thrown from the spinning ride. Gabriela Garin, 21, of White Plains, died after loading visitors on to the ride. Garin was loading passengers after another employee "bumped" her from her position. The second employee did not see that Garin was still on the platform, and started the ride.
On May 22, 2004, seven-year-old Stephanie Dieudonné died after being thrown from the Mind Scrambler.
