The restaurant spins to offer 360 degree views of the city's skyline, and the boy reportedly became lodged between the wall and a rotating table.
A 5-year-old boy from North Carolina was killed in an accident at a rotating restaurant in Atlanta Friday.
The boy's family was in town from Charlotte, WSB-TV reports.
The rotating floor automatically shut off and Westin's security staff and employees were able to dislodge the child.
After wandering from the window table where he was seated with his parents, the boy got caught between the wall and a table, Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer Stephanie Brown told the (Atlanta) Journal-Constitution. "They were moving furniture, they were pulling chairs - chairs that were bolted to the floor - they were pulling them up to try to get the child out". Emergency officials reportedly said that the boy was bleeding from the head and was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital.Читайте также: French judges to European Parliament: lift Le Pen's immunity
The Westin, on Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta, is the same hotel where a kitchen worker died after getting locked in a freezer past year.
In the statement, Reed said the hotel is working with authorities and will assist them in the investigation. "Our thoughts remain with the family", he said in the article.
Westin's manager said, "words can not express the depths of our sorrow".
