On Friday, a family was dining at the Sun Dial restaurant in the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta.
Just before 3:30 p.m., their 5-year-old son wandered away from the table. He somehow got stuck between the wall and a table as the dining area rotated.
Sergeant Warren Pickard says the floor stopped rotating automatically when the child became caught. Security staff was able to dislodge the boy, but he died from his injuries at a local hospital. The boy and the family has not been identified.
