Girl defeeted by Six Flags ride

Girl's feet severed on ride at Six Flags in Kentucky
POSTED: 10:36 p.m. EDT, June 21, 2007

(CNN) -- A girl's feet were cut off Thursday when a free-fall thrill ride malfunctioned at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville, Kentucky, police said.

A cord wrapped around the 16-year-old's feet and severed them at her ankles while she was on the " Tower of Power," a police dispatcher said. The girl was taken to a local hospital.

"That could have been all of us -- riding that ride," Whitney Sandfer, who witnessed the accident, told CNN affiliate WDRB/WMYO.

The incident took place shortly before 5 p.m. ET, according to Six Flags spokeswoman Wendy Goldberg. The park remained open, but the ride in question was shut down and will remain so until the full investigation is complete, Goldberg said.

During the ride, passengers are lifted to 177 feet, suspended momentarily and then dropped, according to the park's Web site.

Passengers drop 154 feet at 54 mph, stopping "just 20 terrifying feet above the pavement," it adds.

"I seen the car go up. Then, like, the cable broke, I heard -- pwchh -- and I heard a lot of people screaming," Chris Stinnett, who was at a ride next to the Tower of Power, told WDRB/WMYO.

"The cable went under the car -- and I seen it pull up and hit a lot of people -- and I seen them bring their legs up," Stinnett said.

The ride was introduced in 1995.

When the investigation is over, if they conclude that the accident was the result of operator error, will they fire the operator and give him severance pay?

Actually, the hospital reported that she seemed strangely detached.

It's called Schadenfreude. Life is too short to not make funny jokes about a story like this.

It wasn't the girl's fault, either. I hope she doesn't shoot herself in the foot over this

You can understand why to some extent. After all, we are Chief fans.

I would make reference to the "agony of de-feet", but I'm sure it has already been mentioned.

This place just isn't the same since that Phil guy left. You guys are really slacking. Not one of you posted about what will happen if the operation does not succeed. When those medical freaks get done with her she'll be the queen of strapons.
