Zeynep’s family claim the teenager died of negligence



The teenage girl was taken to hospital in an ambulance that her family said they had to call themselves because officials at the Hayrola Luna Park amusement park in Istanbul’s Avcilar district did not take the situation seriously.

When the girl stopped responding, her uncle Fatih Gunay told her to “hit two or three times” and that she would wake up.

The uncle added that his niece died of negligence and that she “would do anything” to obtain justice.

It is currently unclear whether the family has already filed a formal complaint with the authorities and whether their claims are being investigated by the police.

“We have been hurt, don’t let others get hurt,” he said.

“My daughter was very successful, she learned day and night. Her goal was to become a good psychologist. “

Zeynep had reportedly secured the results she needed for her desired university course.

Earlier this year, The Mirror reported that a Women died during one Roller coaster ride at an Indiana amusement park after she ruptured an artery and suffered internal bleeding, an autopsy revealed.

Dawn Jankovic, 47, was born on Jan.

The Ohio woman received local treatment before being rushed to the hospital, where she later died.

After an autopsy, Dubois County coroner Katie Schuck said the three causes of death were a combination of internal bleeding, artery rupture and the power of the roller coaster.

The coroner said, “It had nothing to do with the drive itself, but it was basically just the force. It was just your body’s reaction to the drive.”
