Shylah Rodden: Melbourne woman fighting for life following Melbourne Royal Show rollercoaster tragedy.
26-year-old Melbourne woman, Shylah Rodden is fighting for life and remains in intensive care after sustaining ‘horrific’ injuries in an accident at Melbourne Royal Show, which remains under investigation.
Shylah apparently ventured onto a portion of the 350-meter rollercoaster track to collect her phone just before 6 o’clock in the evening before being struck.
According to reports, she was then propelled nine meters into the air before she crashed to the ground in front of terrified onlookers.
Before being rushed to the hospital in a critical condition, paramedics treated her at the scene for severe facial injuries.
Alan Rodden, Shylah’s distraught father, predicted that his daughter will remain unconscious “for quite a while.”
