A subcontractor working on a Ferris wheel at the Jersey Shore boardwalk amusement park “Gillian’s Wonderland Pier” Monday fell to his death while on a lift at the attraction.

Robert W. Sanger, 62, of Pittsgrove, New Jersey was pronounced dead around 10:32 a.m. EDT. According to NBC Philadelphia, he was a subcontracted welder who worked for Cargo Tech International, of Swedesboro, N.J.

“We are saddened to report that an employee of a subcontractor working on a lift at Gillian’s Wonderland Pier suffered a fatal injury Monday morning. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family,” Jay A. Gillian, the amusement park’s president and the mayor of Ocean City said in a statement.

“We are cooperating with all appropriate authorities to thoroughly investigate the cause of his tragic accident. As we get more information, we will provide it,” Gillian added.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating Cargo Tech International and the amusement park to figure out what happened. It will release its findings in six months, according to OSHA spokesperson Leni Fortson.

"He was a wonderful man. He did everything. He was a builder. I'm going to miss everything about him,” Lauren Sanger Bradway, Sanger's daughter told NBC News.

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier has been around since the 1920s. Gillian is the third-generation owner of the amusement park, according to New Jersey.com.
