Man catches teen falling from park ride

Man catches teen falling from park ride

A video on Facebook shows a 14-year-old from DE dangling from a stopped vehicle on a Six Flags Sky Ride in Queensbury, New York, USA Today reports.

So there's a big possibility that this girl chose to be an idiot and leave her seat during the ride - which is probably the case, and probably why she ended up hanging from her neck.

Matthew Howard Sr was just leaving the Six Flags Great Escape Amusement Park with his family when he heard someone screaming.

The 14-year-old girl from Greenwood, Delaware, was taken to Albany Medical Centre in a stable condition with no serious injuries. The ride operator apparently stopped the attraction while bystanders gathered below to catch the girl if she fell to the ground.

A day at the amusement park became anything but fun for a girl who's seen in video dangling from a ride as shocked bystanders wait anxiously to catch her from below.

Some local news reports say the girl who fell was "seriously injured", while others say she was not. Once she got down, she was carried off to a golf cart, and the ride resumed, he said.

Howard was also briefly hospitalized for a back injury. "We were in the right place at the right time".

The scene was caught on video by Loren Lent, from Glenville. He said on Sunday that his 10-year-old daughter and wife were on the ride and watched from high above as the girl fell.

In Chicago, Sarah Hecker, 23, was attending her first pride parade , another event that attracted wall-to-wall crowds. Thousands marched down Paseo de la Reforma for one of the largest gay pride events in Latin America.


Howard is just happy he and his daughter were among those on the ground below.

Six Flags officials said in a statement, "There does not appear to be any malfunction of the ride, but we have closed the attraction until a thorough review of the ride can be completed". "She was crying for about a half-hour after". Rebecca Wood, a spokesperson with Six Flags said the ride had been cleared to resume operation by the New York State Department of Labor.

"We are reviewing our internal procedures to ensure the safety and security of our guests and team members", park offcials said.

Hansen said even though the park had permission to re-open the ride, park officials kept it closed "out of an abundance of caution".
