Girls Feet Severed at Six Flags

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

This is one of the most terrible stories of accidents on amusement rides. I just can't even imagine having both feet cut off. I will be saying prayers for her and her recovery. I hope they were able to re attach her feet. She will never be the same even with reattachment. Let's just say she and her family are now millionaires many times over and they deserve every penny. Not that I am against the amusement park. It is just that she has a catastrophic injury that is worth a lot.

Police confirmed that a girl's feet have been cut off at Six Flags' Kentucky Kingdom. Officials said they got the call around 5 p.m. Thursday, and both her feet were detached at the ankle.

According to MetroSafe dispatch supervisors, the girl was riding the Superman Tower of Power, which is 177 feet tall and drops riders at 54 miles per hour. According to Kentucky Kingdom, the girl was injured when the ride malfunctioned.

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

The incident took place shortly before 5 p.m. ET, according to Six Flags spokeswoman.

The ride was shut down and will remain so until a full investigation has been completed.
