Girl's Feet Cut Off At Six Flags
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.
Quoted for the truth.
Wow...a couple people I know are going to 6 Flag's this weekend...I think it be best I warn them. I feel so bad for the girl.
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.
Oh my God the poor girl.
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.
Watch the video.
The ride is one of those vertical towers that takes you up ~100 feet, then pulls you down really fast.
The video report states that a cable snapped and sliced off the girls feet above the ankle.
That must have been a pretty powerful cabel to snap and cut through the girls bones then. I don't even know how that could even happen. If it cut her feet off, how could it have not cut anyone elses.
Here's what the ride looks like.
Oh man that's horrible. My prayers definitely go out to the girl and her family.
Wrong kind of ride. That's an S&S air powered tower ride. The one at SFKK is an Intamin drop tower. Hauls you up with a cable and then drops you down.
I can't get the video to work.
I...really don't wanna see the video. :sweat:
Anyways, it kinda sux that this happened. Not the news I wanted to hear.
I'm familiar with the design of the ride. I'm just curious how it happened, because aren't the cars passengers ride in mostly enclosed?
thats so sad. i feel bad for her and her family.
The CNN article has more information on how the 16 year old lost her lower legs.
Damn man. I know she ain't gonna like Superman anymore, I tell ya.
