I would like to know how it happened, millions of people have ridden on these rides and nothing like this has ever happened before.

It just seems kind of strange.

With as much as these rides are run though, a lot of times it'* just a matter of time before there'* something that goes wrong, big or small.....I'd say this is pretty big though.

Yeah I'd like to know how it happened too, it would be hard for that to happened. Maybe the ride operator wasnt paying attention and she was sitting on her legs, with her feet hanging out in the back. Other then that, i got nothing.

A police dispatcher said a cord wrapped around the girl'* feet while she was on the ride.

Ouch.
Can you imagine getting your feet pulled off.

She will get a good settlement from the Park insurance.....probably a few million.

It'* amazing more people don't get hurt on those rides. But, it'* also amazing how much work they put into making sure stuff like this doesn't happen more often.
