    Girl's Feet Cut Off At Six Flags

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Police confirmed that a girl's feet have been cut off at Six Flags' Kentucky Kingdom.

    Officials said they got the call around 5 p.m. Thursday and both her feet were detached at the ankle.


    According to MetroSafe dispatch supervisors, the girl was riding the Superman Tower of Power, which is 177 feet tall and drops riders at 54 miles per hour. According to Kentucky Kingdom, the girl was injured when the ride malfunctioned.

    NewsChannel 32 and WLKY.com will have more details as they're available.
    That's kind of a big malfunction.

    This is why I don't exactly love 6 flags. With all the injuries at that place, I'd rather hang out in the kiddy section than risk my bodyparts being ripped off.

    That must have been some kind of malfunction... But that also begs the question of whether anyone else was harmed or if it was only the one girl and what exactly happened. If this ride is anything like the Superman ride I've been on at Six Flags, your feet are hooked onto the ride by the ankles so I guess I could see where something could happen... But even so, as I said in the other roller coaster thread, people know the risks going into these parks. It's definitely a sad story, though.

    There's obviously more to this story, because as it is it sounds kinda... fishy(?) right now. Unless something happened while she getting on or off the ride.

    How do you get your feet cut off by a theme park ride?

    Short of accidently falling onto the track as the next train is coming into the station, or being stupid and trying to sneak onto a ride, I have no idea.

    Whatever the reason, that's awful. Getting your feet cut off by a theme park ride is not my idea of a fun day.
