A 21-year-old employee at the Legoland amusement park was killed in a roller coaster accident, police and park officials said Monday. The woman, who was not identified, died immediately Sunday after being hit by a coaster car, police said. She had apparently jumped over a security fence to pick up a wallet that a passenger had lost near the track when the accident happened.

Man, I hate reading about absolutely senseless deaths that could easily be avoided.

Could have been easily avoided by having the trains stopped before she went over the fence.

Too true. Another thought I have is if the girl was near the tracks (which you shouldn't be in the first place) why didn't she look first? It's sort of like crossing the street without checking to see if any cars/trucks are coming.
Very senseless indeed!

Have you seen the sky rocket in accidents?
Just yesterday 25 people were injured in Europe - sadly one fatily.

Two accidents make not a trend.
