Serious accident with attraction in Bobbejaanland: Man in critical condition

281017dicht3.jpg

A 67-year-old man was seriously injured in Bobbejaanland, this Saturday afternoon. He fell five meters down when he wanted to board Aztek Express. He is in critical condition.

The accident occurred at the Aztek Express, a fast Mexican-style Caterpillar ride around 15 o'clock. Upon entering the attraction, the 67-year-old man from Antwerp fell between two gondolas, five meters down.

The spokeswoman does not know how this accident happened. "That's really a mystery to us. We find it hard to reconstruct the whole story. The attraction is currently closed for further investigation."

The man was brought to the hospital in critical condition by the emergency services.

I'm just about as confused as she is. I don't fully understand how it's possible?

But in any case I hope everything turns out fine and that the man has a speedy recovery.

^Indeed, I do not fully understand it either. As you can see in the picture below, the space between two cars is at most 40 centimeters. How is it possible to precisely fall in that gap?

Anyway, I hope he will fully recover.

It must have occurred at the higher end of the ride. Many someone trying to climb from one car into another.

Personally, I think that the man must have got some kind of an attack, because he's family (who was there with him) didn't see it happen.
I was there last night and the park cancelled the fireworks out of respect for everybody who is involved.
Here are some videos of the news (in Dutch):

Anyway, I hope he fully recovers.

Some very sad news from Bobbejaanland today.

Sadly, the victim of the accident in Bobbejaanland passed away. This Saturday, he was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Today, he died as a result of his injuries.

Aztek Express will remain closed for the rest of the season. This is the first deadly accident at Bobbejaanland.


RIP
