Suicidal man shuts down Elitch Gardens
According to a local CBS affiliate in Denver Colorado, Elitch Gardens was shut down Monday morning due to a man deciding to climb an amusement park ride.
The man, whose identity is unknown as of now, climbed a fence to enter the park around 8am and climbed 60 feet up on the ride called Sidewinder (a boomerang coaster).
The park did not open as normal and stayed closed until 3pm, when the man had been evacuated safely from the ride around 1pm.
