A TEENAGER has died after falling from a roller-coaster in a Benidorm theme park.

The 18-year-old was thrown from his seat after his harness failed midway through the Inferno ride, at Terra Mitica theme park.

The Icelander, on holiday with his family, suffered multiple fractures and head wounds in the fall.

He later died after suffering a heart attack in the ambulance. Witnesses described a scene of complete ‘shock’.

“We saw the teenager’s family and they were obviously distraught,” said tourist Lynn Alexander from Glasgow. “My daughter is so shaken up as she could have been in the same seat just five minutes earlier.”
