A woman mysteriously died after riding on a roller coaster at an Indiana theme park over the weekend.  

Dawn R Jankovic, 47, was found unconscious after riding the roller coaster at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari in Jasper, Indiana, on Friday night, according to the Evansville Courier and Press. 

According to the theme park’s Facebook post, Jankovic visited Holiday World in Santa Claus on Friday and was riding The Voyage when she lost consciousness.

Holiday World emergency medical technicians treated Jankovic on scene before an ambulance arrived to rush her to nearby Memorial Hospital. She was pronounced dead hours later. 

The results of Jankovic’s autopsy have not yet been released as officials say an inspection found nothing wrong with the roller coaster itself.

‘I’m shocked over this tragic news. Rest In Peace, Dawn Renee Jankovic,’ friend Alice Tackett wrote on the Facebook page. 

‘We sure had some good times! I’ll never forget your spunky attitude and love for rock n’ roll. Keep it rockin’ in the sky my friend. You’ll be missed by many.’

A GoFundMe was created by Tackett to help offset funeral costs as well as the cost of transporting Dawn’s body back to Ohio. 

As of Monday, the page had raised $7,950 from 143 donors, well past the initial $4,000 goal.

The Voyage ride remained closed for the rest of Friday night ‘out of respect for the family,’ according to Newsweek.

WDRB reported that it could take up to six weeks to determine what exactly killed Jankovic.
