Ride Mechanic Injured at Indiana Beach

Recommended Posts

Uh-Oh. Here is some bad news out of Indiana Beach- a ride mechanic was apparently hit by a ride train while working on Cornball Express, I assume it was the same ride that hit him. He survived but is badly injured.




Hopefully this guy makes a full recovery.

Hopefully he is ok and able to recover.  I wonder exactly what happened.  Ie, was something not done according to procedure, if he was hit by a train.


I`m sure this will have an impact on the crew at Indiana Beach.  I know Coney`s four rides mechanics fairly well. I would be saddened if something serious like this ever happened to them at Coney.

electricsun and I were at the park when this happened. We rode it about 1/2 hr to an hour before this happened. We did not see any of the incident, but Cornball and Hoosier Hurricane were down the rest of the day (or at least when we left around 4:30.) Not sure about the rest of the weekend.
