Her body was taken to the Office of The Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of death.

The woman was employed by Deggeller Attractions.

  1. Scary to think that she was supposed to run a ride. I would think you should be on your A game while at work.
