On Friday, a 5-year-old boy died after sustaining injuries at a rotating restaurant in Atlanta. The boy, Charlie Holt, had stuck his head between a wall and table while the floor was moving at the Sun Dial Restaurant, Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel.

The child left his parents' side, and as the floor began to move, he got caught between four to five inches of space and thus, crushed him. The floor automatically stopped as it caught something. The boy was found having sustained head injuries where he was taken to and died in the Grady Memorial Hospital.

Sgt. Warren Pickard told CNN News, "A small child (doesn't) know what to do in those moments. It crushed his little, small body." Holt was with his parents when they were visiting the city from Charlotte, North Carolina. They were the last persons for the lunch crowd after eating their lunch around 3:30 p.m. The restaurant usually closes at 2:30 p.m.

ABC News mentioned that a representative from the Sun Dial said the restaurant will be closed upon further notice and is being inspected by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. A spokesperson for the bereaved family issued a statement to the press that reads: ''The family asks for prayers and privacy right now to come to terms with this tragedy."

The statement continued that the family has no other words to express for their loss. They asked that if anybody loves someone today, they should give their loved one a hug. The family wouldn't be issuing a photo of their child anytime soon.

The Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel makes a clockwise position every hour, giving people on it a complete view of Atlanta's skyline. All staff and personnel are working with the authorities to cooperate with them in any way they can. George Reed, the hotel's manager, has extended his condolences.
