At Colorado Amusement Park, A 6-Year-Old Girl Dies On The Mine Drop Ride

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. — An inquiry is underway after a 6-year-old child died at an amusement park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, while on vacation with her family.

Few specifics have been disclosed, however, Suzanne Emery of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park said the fatality was caused by “some event” that happened Sunday evening on the Haunted Mine Drop ride. The park will be closed Monday and Tuesday, according to the Post Independent.

We will not have any more comments until all information has been confirmed, out of respect for all parties concerned. “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved,” Emery said in a statement.

Park staff administered first assistance until paramedics came and confirmed the girl had died, according to Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire. The name of the girl has not been revealed.

The Haunted Mine Drop, which debuted in July 2017, is the first subterranean drop experience, taking riders 110 feet (33 meters) inside Iron Mountain. Before riding any of the park’s rides or attractions, guests must sign a liability waiver.

The death is being investigated by the sheriff’s and coroner’s departments.
