Brazilian police say a part from a roller coaster came loose at an amusement park outside Rio de Janeiro, striking and killing a teenager.

Investigators in the western suburb of Recreio dos Bandeirantes say 10 other people were injured in the incident late last night.

Police have identified the victim as 17-year-old Alessandra Aguiar, who was waiting in line to buy tickets to the roller coaster when a part came loose and hit her.

The city’s health department said in a news release Sunday that 10 other people waiting in line suffered injuries, including two teenagers who were being treated at a local hospital.
