Story and Photos
Screams and shrieks were not the usual kind on the Boardwalk in Daytona Beach last night, they were of fear and pain as two people were ejected from the Rollercoaster falling more then 30 feet after a malfunction. No comment yet has been given by Daytona Beach Boardwalk Amusement Rides as to the cause.
According to our sources at least 4 other people were injured a total of 6 were transported to the hospital.
A tower truck was used by the DBFD as they rescued a total of 10 people who were in 3 cars.
Weather has not been given as a cause either.
Witnesses report hearing a grind shriek as the malfunction occurred.
We have no reports at this time of violations and
while no fatalities were reported yet, it is a reminder of the lenient and unenforced codes and desperate need for infrastructure that are at issue in Daytona Beach. With the announcement of the departure of the perceived public enemy County ManagerJim Dinneen, questions will be raised as to who is at fault for this. Will it be Jim Chisholm's turn to throw in the towel.
More to come on this story as details emerge.
