A happy family outing turned deadly for a Turkish teen after she choked on her own vomit during an amusement park ride.

The shocking incident occurred Monday, Aug. 31, at Istanbul’s Hayrola Luna Park.

Zeynep Günay and her family were on a pendulum-style attraction called the "Kamikaze" when the freak accident happened. The 19-year-old psychology student had gone to the amusement park to unwind while she awaited exam results, the Daily Mail reported.

Günay reportedly vomited and lost consciousness after the "Kamikaze" lifted off the ground.

When her parents noticed her predicament they pleaded with the fairgrounds employees to stop the ride but they allegedly refused. When the attraction eventually came to a halt, Günay was found unresponsive.

According to the report, the operators had told the girl’s parents that she would wake up if "slapped two or three times".

Günay’s uncle, Fatih Günay, alleged that the family was forced to call the ambulance themselves because the park employees neglected to do so.

Günay was rushed to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. She died because the vomit had blocked her respiratory tract.

Fatih said that his niece died as a result of negligence and that they would do "whatever it takes" to get justice.

However, it’s unclear at this time whether the family has filed an official complaint with authorities or if an investigation is ongoing.

Zeynep’s grieving father, M. Emin Günay spoke to local media after he buried his daughter in the cemetery in Beylikdüzü.

"We were hurt, don't let others get hurt," he said.

To add insult to tragedy, it later came out that Günay had secured the results she needed to get accepted into her desired university course.

"My daughter was very successful, she studied day and night. Her goal was to become a good psychologist," the father sobbed.

A similar incident happened on Aug. 14, when a 32-year-old man plunged nearly 50 feet to his death from a chair lift at Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, Utah.

A witness took a video of the man silently dangling from the ride's safety bar before the fall. According to the footage, he did not appear to be distressed or attempting to reclaim his seat.
