A man was killed by a roller coaster at a Christmas market in Berlin on Saturday night, the city’s fire department said. The cause of the accident is currently unknown. Fire department spokesman Jens-Peter Wilke said the man was hit by the roller coaster and crushed underneath. Firefighters responded to the incident shortly after 7 p.m., but attempts to revive the man on site were unsuccessful. A family that had been on the ride received psychological treatment. Berlin police said they did not suspect foul play. According to the fire department, the man was most likely a ride attendant. The Christmas market, on a large parking lot on Landesburger Allee in Berlin’s northeast, was closed after the incident. It had just opened on Friday. wmr/aw (dpa) Every day, DW’s editors send out a selection of the day’s hard news and quality feature journalism. You can sign up to receive it directly here.
