Man Dies After Being Hit by Roller Coaster in Ohio

A man visiting an amusement park in Mason, Ohio, was recently struck by a roller coaster and later died at the hospital.

The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office announced the death Monday, WBNS report The victim, Nelson Arntanaro, 38, died Friday at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

He was in one of the restricted areas of the park to retrieve keys he had lost at Kings Island when the tragic incident occurred – the area around the Banshee rollercoaster, where he dropped the keys while riding.

The victim was found on the ground with injuries, and the coroner’s office called the victim’s death a “suspected accident,” also noting that authorities are still investigating the incident.

Park staff Said The Local 12 councillor said: “Things aren’t more important than your life, that can wait. There is a reason you shouldn’t return to those areas and there is no point in trying to get around the safety measures etc. They are there for a purpose and it can quickly become very dangerous.”

According to employees, the man approached a ride attendant and told them he had lost his keys and needed them to exit the park, but he was told that officials could not retrieve them at this time and that he would have to wait until the park closed to retrieve them.

However, the man reportedly became “agitated” and walked away. Minutes later, other park visitors approached the worker, shouting.

Employees who spoke to Local 12 said some passengers sitting in the front of the ride had scrapes on their legs and said they’d been hit by something. They also reported that the ride can reach speeds of up to 68 mph. The ride has been closed while authorities investigate the incident.
