This accident happened at a city called Shengchi, it's a typical city park that owns a few rides. The top spin's restraint opened during the ride cycle and the rider fell off the ride to his death. Here's a video of what happened at the park, might cause some discomfort.
UPDATE! Witnesses say the 19-year-old, who has only been identified by his surname, was seen repeatedly "standing" on his seat as the ride swung back and forth.
This may not be a ride malfunction, but more of a "Darwin Award" scenario. We will post updates as we get them.
UPDATE! The report of the man standing could be erroneous as it may be a copy/paste typo from another ride accident. Reports at the moment are very sketchy and few and far between. Since this happened in China, a lot of the information has not been out yet. If you see any additional news or information about the accident, please post the links in the comments section. Thank you!
