This is horrific:
That's horrible. I wonder if they can reattach them? God I hope 6 Flags has good insurance. I'm against frivolous lawsuits but having your feet cut OFF is not expected risk of riding an amusement park ride.
Sweet jesus...wow...that's terrible. I hope they can save them....
Man that's nuts...they said a cable broke and snapped upward and hit some of the people and wrapped around the girls feet I guess..I'm sure she'll be well compensated for by the park..
On a side note...they found some scholars witnesses though:
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville, Kentucky
That's awful. I have always hated those freefall rides but my wife loves them. I will have to send this to her. I am guessing this cable was some sort of "safety" device to prevent the ride from crashing to the ground.
Sure sounded like it...
I am not suprised. Kentucky Kindgom is only a few hours from here and I have been there a couple of times and it all mostly looks like carnival type rides. Nothing super safe looking.
OMG! That is wack. I hope they can get her fixed up. Dear Lord. Freak Accident.
Maybe they'll compensate her with a free season pass ... or free drink.
They're not giving any details but they said she is in surgery. Hopefully they are reattaching her feet. How gruesome.
Isn't it standard procedure to check every ride EVERY DAY for wear and tear? I think someone wasn't doing their job to inspect each ride. :?
I don't think that statement at all implies that they weren't doing maintenance or inspection. Its policy (and probably law) to do a full investigation after this sort of thing. It will be like the forensics work done at a crime scene. What went wrong, when and why?
