Rainbow's End in South Auckland is expected to remain closed today after the death of a 21-year-old worker at the theme park. Michael Ross Stuart of Papakura died yesterday after he became trapped in one of the park's rides shortly before the usual opening time of 10am. Details of how the accident occurred were not known yesterday, but the police said it appeared Mr Stuart had become trapped between one of the gondola compartments and the frame of the ride while he was cleaning it. The machine was not running at the time.
