In the British amusement park Drayton Manor Theme Park a female visitor died after riding Maestrom, a giant swing ride. It is assumed that the woman, Carla Knight, suffered a cardiac arrest. The victim, a mother-of-two, collapsed after exiting Maelstrom. Despite efforts of the First Aid team of the park, the woman died at the scene.
Maelstrom is a so called gyro swing, manufactured by Intamin, from Switzerland. This spectacular ride opened in 2002 and has a swing height of 22m and a swing angle of 95 degrees.
