 Girl loses legs on Six Flags:Kentucky Kingdom ride!!!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A young girl was injured on a thrill ride at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.

Louisville Metro Police Dispatch tells us that both of the girl’s feet were severed in this accident.

“I saw a lot of kids go up… I seen them going up then it came down and the cable came back around and hit a lot of people… They said the cable wrapped around somebody’s legs and ripped them off,” said one witness.

From The a.ssociated Press:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- One person was injured during a ride at a popular amusement park on Thursday, a park official said.

The accident happened around 4:45 p.m. on the Superman Tower of Power at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, said Six Flags spokeswoman Wendy Goldberg.

The extent of the person’s injury was unknown, Goldberg said.

The ride takes passengers straight up 177 feet before a free-fall of 154 feet, reaching a speed of 54 mph.

It is unclear at what point during the ride the person was injured, Goldberg said. The person was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Louisville EMS said it could not comment on the extent of the person’s injuries due to privacy laws.

It wasn't a roller coster..

It was one of them free fall rides..

I just don't understand how her legs got caught..

Cuz we have a similar ride here in our town.. I'm figuring that flag pole had something to do with it.. lol.. unless they had some loose a.ss wire flying around

What's so bad about 'I seen it'. I understand it's incorrect, but i'm sure people who say that realise it's not 'proper' English.

I say 'seen' instead of 'saw' all the time. It's not like everyone who says the above is doing it because they're idiots, for the most part it's down to where you're brought up.

Also, it's 'grammar' with an 'a'. There's no 'e' in it.:rolleyes:

I have updated this with new articles as they have been released...

A 13-year-old girl’s legs were severed above the ankle when a ride at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom malfunctioned late this afternoon, a park official said.

The accident on the Superman Tower of Power happened about 4:45 p.m., park spokeswoman Carolyn McLean said.

McLean said park EMTs were on the scene immediately.

The girl, whose name was not released, was being treated at University Hospital. Her condition and where she was from was not immediately available.

McLean said the ride was shut down and would remain closed until a full investigation was completed.

Another park spokeswoman, Wendy Goldberg, said it was unclear at what point during the ride the girl was injured.

The ride takes passengers straight up 177 feet before a free-fall of 154 feet, reaching a speed of 54 mph, according to the park’s Web site.

The rest of the park remained open.
