Girl's Feet Cut Off At Six Flags

POSTED: 5:53 pm EDT June 21, 2007

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- 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. Dispatchers said she was taken to University Hospital.


Holy crap. That must've been one hell of a malfunction. I can't think of many things that, when it fucks up, actually lops off both your feet. The sight of two bloody shoe stumps just sitting there must've been quite a bizzare sight.
