OSHA launches investigation into deadly incident at Silver Dollar City (1)

SURROUNDING BRANSON, MO (CSU) – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United States Department of Labor began an inquiry into the death of a Silver Dollar City maintenance worker on Friday.

Rhonda Burke, an OSHA spokesman, gave this information to csu News.

The worker allegedly suffered head injuries while maintaining and testing a roller coaster; he was taken to the hospital on July 20 and later passed away on July 21 from blunt force head trauma.

The investigation will reveal how the injuries happened and whether any safety rules were broken, which may have contributed to the damage and eventual death. OSHA has six months to wrap up its inquiry, cite violators, and suggest financial penalties.

This message was provided to CSU News by the park on Thursday morning.

We convey the news of the passing of a Silver Dollar City employee with deep sorrow. The incident happened late yesterday afternoon. He joined our Silver Dollar City family in 2017, working in maintenance and construction. He was a passionate and committed part of our community.

During this trying time, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. We are unable to offer any more details out of respect for their privacy.

To find the problem, Silver Dollar City is collaborating closely with the appropriate organisations.

The victim’s name and the location of the incident have not been disclosed by park officials. However, Thunderation is the only ride that has been permanently closed since the disaster, according to the theme park’s app.

On Thursday, the Amusement Ride Safety Unit of the Division of Fire Safety sent investigators to the scene.
