A six-year-old boy has been flown to hospital after reportedly falling 10 metres from a rollercoaster in the uk. 

Eyewitnesses reported seeing a six-year-old boy fall from the Twister ride at Lightwater Valley theme park, according to The Sun.

The boy’s mum was allegedly “screaming hysterically” as he was hanging backwards out of the carriage. 

According to one witness, the young boy “slid out and over the top of the carriage” before falling “30ft (10 metres) to the ground”. 

It comes 18 years after 20-year-old Gemma Savage died when two carriages collided on the exact same Twister ride.

Emergency services rushed to the scene and the ride was shut down.


The young boy has been transported to Leeds General Infirmary, Yorkshire Air Ambulance confirmed.
