Over Easter weekend, a tragedy occurred in Atlanta atop it’s famed Sun Dial restaurant at the Westin Peachtree Hotel. The restaurant, which sets atop the Westin at 723 feet in the air, has a rotating floor, allowing diners sweeping views of the city. In what can only be described as a total freak accident, a 5-year-old boy was caught between the wall and the revolving floor as the restaurant rotated on Friday, April 14th.
“Somehow, the child became lodged between the wall and a table as the dining area rotated,” Atlanta Police Officer Stephanie Brown told Buzzfeed News.
Though staff and patrons rushed to his aid and pulled him free, the boy died of his injuries. The Huffington Post reports that when the accident happened, he was just four to five feet away from his parents’ table.
