“She has traveled the [safety] bar and her husband tried to grab her by the foot, “a witness by the name of Farida told the newspaper.

It is the same journey where a 35-year-old woman died after being deported in 2009, the newspaper said.

Park officials confirmed to FR24 News that a woman died on the scene Saturday after falling while the ride was “in operation”.

“The park area has been completely cut off for visitors,” said Parc Saint-Paul director Gilles Campion in a press release, FR24 said.
