Woman falls out of Texas Giant roller coaster and dies

Wow....


http://thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/2...er-texas.html/


Update at 9:10 p.m.: Our Tanya Eiserer spoke with Carmen Brown of Arlington, who says she was next in line to ride the Texas Giant behind the woman who fell to her death this evening. She told Tanya she witnessed the woman being strapped into the ride. She was sitting next to her son.

The woman, said Brown, “basically tumbled over and you just see her son [go], ‘Ahhh.’ They didn’t secure her right. One of the employes from the park — one of the ladies — she asked her to click her more than once, and they were like, ‘As long you heard it click, You’re OK.’ Everybody else is like, ‘Click, click, click.’ Hers only clicked once. Hers was the only one that went down once, and she didn’t feel safe, but they let her still get on the ride. …

“That could have been me.”

Brown said the woman’s young son was in a seat in front of his mother.

“We heard her screaming,” Brown said. “We were like, ‘Did she just fall?’”

Update at 8:05 p.m.: Six Flags Over Texas spokesperson Sharon Parker just sent a statement that says in full:

We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time.

The incident occurred shortly after 6:30 Friday evening. Witnesses, like the one below, say the restraints came undone, and the woman simply vanished off the towering ride. Others say people on the ground directed rescue workers to her location.

On Facebook, a woman who said she was next in line to ride the Texas Giant wrote that “the lady whose seat I was about to get into on the Giant wasn’t there when the red train came back!! Seriously! People in front row screaming when they came back that their mom was gone. We waited about 50 mins & now kids are freaking out.”


According to Six Flags, the ride rises as high as 14 stories and takes a 79-degree drop.

A rollercoaster has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary after falling out of one, that's what gets you.

The worst part about it was the son who just watched his mom fall out and die. Awful.....

People were like "with that pacemaker you can't ride rollercoasters" and I was like "no problem." This is why. I don't wish to have my fate decided by a teenager making minimum wage to ensure my seatbelt clicks.

Why couldn't you make sure it was clicked yourself?

I'm a live pussy though.

You're probably the dick monkey that repaired the seat belts. I heard about your quality of workmanship.

In the late 90's i rode Batman at Six Flags st. louis with my kids... never again, more scared they were going to slip out of their harnesses than anything else.

These things are designed by engineers who in many instances have never rode them and operated by part time college kids... if i sound like Scarey Larry, its because i know how stupid people can be.

Give me the Log Flume, where atleast i get cooled off on some ridiculously hot summer day and the worst i might get is a water moccasin bite...

I'll plead the fifth.

Keep my name out of your mouth when discussing this situation in the future please.

Seems to me the maintenance on that stuff would be so crazy to do properly. It surprises me that you don't see it more often.
