Boy dies after getting stuck at Atlanta rotating restaurant
ATLANTA — Officials say a 5-year-old boy has died after getting caught in the rotating wall of an Atlanta restaurant.
Atlanta Fire Department spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford says the little boy got his head stuck between a wall and a table, and suffered a head injury Friday. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It was unclear how the child got stuck at the Sun Dial, which sits atop the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel.
According to its website, the Sun Dial opened in 1976 and features a revolving restaurant, a rotating cocktail lounge and an observatory level with a 360-degree panorama of the skyline from 723 feet.
A guest services representative with the hotel said the Sun Dial will be closed until at least Monday.
Police say the boy and his family were visiting Atlanta from North Carolina.
