    This title is misleading because the accident didn't happen while he was ON the ride.

    Tragic though!

    Wow. I can't imagine what his family must be feeling. And those other kids who had to witness that? Wow again.

          the story that I saw on Headline News was that him and some friends from a church group left their party and climbed a backstage fence. They were walking around under the Batman ride. As a train was traveling towards them, the boy tried to hold on to a rider's legs and as a result, the boy was decapitated.

          I don't feel any sympathy for this kid, but I do hope that his family is okay and that the riders on the coaster were mentally okay. That must be very traumatic to watch something like that occur.

              I can see a lawsuit brewing if there wasn't sufficient cameras in place for the ride ops to determine the entry and hit an E-Stop accordingly... this is partially what happened with Thunder.

              On a side note, Darwinism at it's finest... sorry to be cold about it but there is a reason for a fence with a sign that states do not enter authorized personnel only.

                  Reminds me of the time a simliar event happened at Paramounts Great America.. some guy hopped fences to get his hat that he lost on Top Gun... was killed and shattered the legs of the person on the ride who hit him.

                    It's sad but I agree with everone else. If he would of stayed where he belonged he would still be alive.

                      I've been to SFOG and ridden that batman. The fences in the area are VERY high, they must have had some help getting over the fence. And there is MAJOR signage in the area about NOT hopping the fence. Unfortunately I have no pictures of the area.

                      It sucks, but I have no sympathy for people who die doing stupid stuff. Sorry.

                              I feel sorry for the family, but stupidity never pays off.

                                I feel no sympathy for the kid. Those fences and signs are there for a reason. It is terrible for their family to have to lose a member in that way.

                                I feel even worse for the riders who had no choice but to witness this event. They were forced into a situation.

                                I wonder how tall the fences are, and exactly how tall they will now have to be after the lawsuit?

                                  the two fences that the kid climbed over are both six feet tall and had warning signs. I just read another news story that said he was only with one other friend and they both climbed each fence.

                                    I just read an updated news article.

                                    The teenager and a friend left the park to get food. When they came back, instead of going back to the entrance, they hopped the perimeter fence (fence 1). Then, for reasons unknown, jumped the fence surrending Batman: The Ride (fence 2). Both fences are 6 feet tall and in the case of the Batman one, covered in large red signs saying "DANGER Restricted Area".

                                    My opinion: This is ridiculous! What more do you want to do to prevent accidents like this? If 6 feet tall fences and large red signs are not enough, do you need barbed wire? Electrified fences? Large moats filled with water?

                                      what they need to prevent accidents is some common sense. (and i'm not talking about the park)
