Couple of things:
The park is being required to enhance its signage and fencing around the ride; officials seemed to emphasize, however, that they considered the prior fencing and signage to be adequate. The new signs have to include the phrase "extreme danger." Update: To see the Department of Labor's press release, go here.
Also, the 911 call is available; the witness said that the boy "jumped the fence."
His cousin (who was with him) confirmed that, saying that they'd taken a break in the parking lot and jumped two fences to get back into the park.
Update 2: The police department's press release is here (scroll down).
