Jankovic, of Brunswick, Ohio, fell unconscious while riding The Voyage roller coaster at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, last week.

According to the theme park, the woman returned to the ride’s station on Friday (June 4) night “unresponsive,” and the park’s emergency crew arrived minutes later and provided first aid.

Ms. Jankovic was transported to nearby Memorial Hospital in Jasper, Indiana, for further treatment.

Sadly, the 47-year-old woman died later that evening. The guest had been transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper, Indiana.

Dubois County Coroner Katie Schuck formally identified the woman and confirmed that an autopsy had been performed.

The results, she said, are pending notification of Ms. Jankovic’s next of kin.

The tragic death comes just weeks after Holiday World celebrated its 75th season, and The Voyager turns 15.

The ride was reportedly named “Best Wooden Roller Coaster” by Amusement Today magazine for several years a decade ago.

This is not the first death to happen on a roller coaster, last year, a woman also tragically lost her life at a theme park, but this time in France, where the woman after falling off a roller coaster lost her life.
