WISCONSIN DELLS, WI (WTAQ) - The state Department of Safety and Professional Services has investigated a mishap at a Wisconsin Dells resort in which a man fell from a roller coaster.

The agency said two inspectors checked out the Opa ride Friday at Mount Olympus. That's where a 64-year-old man was injured late yesterday, when he fell 15 to 20 feet from the ride. There was no immediate word on the victim's condition.

The roller coaster is closed, but the indoor amusement park at Mount Olympus remains open.

A report on the state's investigation is due out next week, after the ride's manufacturer completes its own review of the mishap.
