Boy Dies After Falling From Zip line

An 11-year-old boy died Sunday after falling from a zip line at a theme park in Snowdonia, Wales, the Guardian reported.

The tragedy happened around 4:30 p.m. Sunday at GreenWood Forest Park at Bethel on the park's new "SwampFlyer" zip, the Daily Mail reported.

According to the theme park's website, the zip line was launched just last week and is "the longest zip line in Wales." The park's operation manager, Steve Williams, couldn't say why the tragedy occurred. He said the ride is checked over every morning by park maintenance crews.
