Teenager Dies After Being Thrown from a Roller Coaster Called Hell

On Monday, like a scene out of the Final Destination movie series, a teenager died after being thrown from a roller coaster in Benidorm, Spain.

According to the Mirror, the unnamed 18-year-old British boy’s harness malfunctioned during a 360-degree turn on Terra Mitica’s Inferno.

He suffered multiple fractures and head wounds, and was pronounced dead en route to the hospital.

The theme park posted a statement on its website saying they have not determined the cause of the tragic accident but that the Inferno roller coaster (Catalan for ‘hell’), which was unveiled in 2007, and the park itself had an untarnished safety record.

Police reported that the victim was a tourist on holiday from Iceland with his family and a friend.

Roller coaster casualties are very uncommon. The odds of dying on a roller coaster are 1 in 300 million, as maintained by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.
