Emergency services attempted to resuscitate the victim but were ultimately unsuccessful and she died at the scene. No one else was injured, the park said.

Amiens police are conducting an investigation into the incident and a representative said “the cause of the accident cannot be determined” at this time.

“The park area has been completely cut off for visitors. The teams took care of the visitors and the families concerned,” park director Gilles Campion said. “All the teams join the family to express their deep sadness following this event.”

Parc Saint-Paul re-opened following restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 on June 6, with new guidelines including requiring masks in the park and social distancing measures.
