A woman was thrown to her death from a roller coaster in France — as her husband desperately tried to catch her feet, according to reports.
The unidentified 32-year-old mother was celebrating her 2-year-old child’s birthday at Saint-Paul Park in Oise on Saturday when tragedy struck on a Formula 1 ride, the Courrier Picard said.
Park officials confirmed to FR24 News that a woman died at the scene Saturday after falling while the ride was “in operation.”
“The park area has been completely cut off for visitors,” Parc Saint-Paul director Gilles Campion said in a press release, FR24 said.
Police are still investigating the cause of the deadly accident at the park that attracts nearly 380,000 visitors per year, the reports said.
