Amusement park employee struck and killed by roller-coaster in Montreal

MONTREAL - An employee of Montreal's La Ronde amusement park who strayed into a restricted area while doing repairs has been killed by a passing roller-coaster train.

Ambulance workers treated numerous clients of the ride and employees for shock after today's incident.

The employee, who was in his 50s, was declared dead immediately and there were no efforts to revive him because of the obvious extent of his injuries.

La Ronde said the ride will be closed indefinitely pending an investigation.

A spokesman for the amusement park says investigators want to know why the employee was in the tightly controlled area while he worked.
