Fatal accident at Tokyo Dome City

I translated this japanese newsreport with google translate, but it basically stated a man was ejected from their Maurer-Sohne Spinning Coaster. The picture show where they believe the 1m85, 100 kg (6 feet tall, 220 lbs) man fell and died.

Scary accident! Its also not the first time it happens on the Maurer spinner. Crush Coaster at Walt Disney Studios in France is a custom Maurer spinning and a man also fell from the ride, but survived. Ever since, they installed lap bar sensors on the ride to make sure its deep enough.
