This is one of those stories that get to me. Two kids hop two six-foot isolation fences to gain entrance to the area in which a roller coaster is running. One of them is decapitated as a result of their trespassing--presumably not while riding the coaster, clearly not while riding as a paying customer. This is referred to in the story as the second fatality associated with this roller coaster this year. Putting aside the sadness of a young person's death, this death was not caused by a roller coaster; it was caused by a human being's actions. That he was in the park with a "church group" does not excuse his own culpability.
