Unusual Accident Kills Young Child


June 01, 2017

Summary: A five-year-old child died in an accident at an Atlanta tourist attraction, according to a report from AJC.com. The little boy and his parents had gone to the Sun Dial, the rotating restaurant on top of the Westin Hotel Peachtree Plaza, for lunch. The child became caught between a wall and the rotating part of the floor, and was crushed. As soon as people noticed what was happening, they tried to get the boy out of the place where he was stuck. Even though emergency responders came to the accident scene quickly, the boy was injured so severely that he tragically died at the hospital.

Unusual Accident Kills Young Child

The Sun Dial Restaurant has a unique feature - a rotating floor. The restaurant is located 70 stories up, and the rotating floor affords diners a 360-degree view of Atlanta. The floor is designed to stop if a person or an item gets trapped in the rotating mechanism, but even that safety feature did not prevent the tragic death of a little boy who got stuck in a very small space between the floor and a wall, according to AJC.com.

Strange Things Can Happen, and Injuries and Death May Result

The accident described above, which claimed the life of a young child, is not something that happens every day. There are few places with rotating floors and even fewer situations where a person gets stuck in one. However, there is always the chance that wherever you are, something odd could happen that could hurt or kill a person. These rare occasions are often called "freak accidents," and they are very unusual.
