Posted by: Webmaster | 21 June 2001 17:00

Gemma Savage died at the Leeds General Infirmary at 1400 BST on Thursday, following an accident involving a collision on the Treetop Twister roller coaster at Lightwater Valley Theme Park in Ripon on Wednesday at 1345.

Ms Savage from Wath upon Dearne, South Yorkshire, was a 20-year-old student at the University of Durham. She was airlifted to hospital after the crash, and was unconscious with severe head and spinal injuries. Three men were also taken to hospital, one with a broken arm.

The Treetop Twister was a new ride this year and opened in May. The ride remains closed pending a health and safety investigation.
