JERUSALEM — A woman who was trapped inside an amusement park’s roller coaster on a roller coaster track and died from her injuries was not wearing a seat belt, officials said Friday.
She died Friday after a fall in the amusement pavilion at the Zebra Park in the northern Israeli city of Tel Aviv, said the city’s emergency services chief, Zvi Katz.
Her death was not immediately released by the city authorities.
The accident occurred on the second day of the annual Summer Fest, which began in July.
The amusement park is located in the Tel Aviv neighborhood of Safed.
Katz said that the woman, who was 21, was not seated in the seat belt and fell to the ground after falling.
She was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead, he said.
A police investigation is ongoing, Katz said.
Israel is the only country in the world that bans children under 16 from riding roller coasters.
The Zebra park is one of the world’s biggest amusement parks.
