Girl Reports Being Shocked on Indiana Beach Rollercoaster

(MONTICELLO) — State officials say a 12-year-old girl reported being shocked as she got off an Indiana rollercoaster two days after a 12-year-old boy riding it suffered a medical condition and died.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security regulates and inspects rides. The agency reports the girl saw a doctor last week and said she’d been shocked while exiting the Hoosier Hurricane roller coaster at Indiana Beach in Monticello.

The incident comes after 12-year-old Brayden Cooper-Douglas of Lafayette required medical attention while on the ride June 27 and died that afternoon. White County authorities say the boy had a medical emergency not caused by the ride.

Indiana Beach Director of Marketing Boo Birk says the safety of guests is a priority. Birk says the Hoosier Hurricane was “thoroughly examined” after the reported incident.
