The boy was at the Sun Dial restaurant - whose dining area topping the 73-story cylindrical Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel rotates to give patrons a panoramic view of the city - when he left his parents' table Friday afternoon.

The reported read that the boy was pronounced dead around 4:20 p.m., about an hour after he became caught in the wall.

"I simply think he lost sight of his parents and panicked, and found himself in that situation".

The boy and his family were visiting from Charlotte and were at the restaurant for lunch, it said. "A small child doesn't know what to do in those moments".

Hotel security and staff rushed to help as the automatic shut off stopped the floor from rotating, but the boy's injuries were too severe and he died at Grady Memorial Hospital, Brown said.

Trump says US-Russia relations 'may be at an all-time low'
Tillerson's meeting with Putin comes after an icy reception upon arriving in Moscow and a closed-door meeting with Lavrov. But Russia, an ally of Syria, used its powers in the United Nations to block it.

A spokeswoman for Sun Dial, on the 72nd floor of the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel in the Georgia capital's downtown, did not return a call or email seeking comment on Saturday.

"As soon as we learned of the accident, we immediately responded until emergency personnel arrived", Reed said. "Our thoughts remain with the family". They were not staying at the hotel, according to authorities.

In a statement, the owner of the restaurant, George Reed, said "words can not express the depths of our sorrow".

The Sun Dial will be closed until further notice.

"The family asks for prayers and privacy right now to come to terms with this tragedy".
