Teen Loses Feet In Six Flags Accident

Officials at a Louisville amusement park say both of a teenage girl's legs were severed above the ankle while on a thrill ride at the park.

Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom spokeswoman Wendy Goldberg says the accident happened around 4:45 p.m. Thursday on the Superman Tower of Power.

They're there one second and gone the next and you sit there with a shocked look on yer face. Been there, done that, got no t-shirt.

My heart goes out to her.
peace

Re: Teen Loses Feet In Six Flags Accident

I went on a ride like this once and I'll never do it again. I just don't like that straight down free fall feeling. I feel horrible for this girl. Can anyone say lawsuit?

As bad as this is, those rides are still very safe. Your son is in more danger riding in a car to the park then getting hurt at the park.

Re: Teen Loses Feet In Six Flags Accident

OK, are we all clear to start the puns now?

I hope that whatever settlement she gets out of this really gives her a leg up on life.

Ban this man. I think this is one where we never start with the puns. Puns are reserved fro someone who does something stupid and gets injured.

I feel terrible for that girl and her family. That's a real shame.

Personally, I love those kind of rides but damn

Agreed. It would be one thing if this had happened to some dumb adult who did some dumb stunt but it's not. A young woman had her life horribly altered in the blink of an eye. She and her family, through no fault of their own, are now faced with overcoming an unforseen and crippling disability. Hopefully, they will be up to the challenge.

Although I oppose banning of thought for any number of reasons, I do think a little more personal restraint would be appropriate. Before you pun, please put yourself in this young woman's or her family's position. There, but for the grace of god, go you or I.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the young woman and her family.

No fun.

In that case, this becomes a thread full of people stating the obvious...

- "Wow, what a shame."
- "Gee, that sucks, I feel bad for her."
- "Wow, there will be a big lawsuit."

Boo!

Sometimes, it ain't about the fun.

If we are mundane in our concern, it only shows that we are not self-centered and uncaring individuals.

There so much in this world to lambast, lampoon and laugh at (Bush and Clinton provide a LIFETIME of fun), that, IMHO, to do so to and at the expense of a young woman's unearned tragedy is unneccesary and cruel.
