I don’t know how in the hell this girl ended up hanging off a ride at Six Flags but it happened, and of course it was caught on film.
A 14-year-old girl was caught on film hanging off the Sky Ride at Six Flags Great Escape in upstate Queensbury, N.Y. Video shows the teen hanging off the stopped gondola ride and screaming as she tries to hold on knowing that a 25-foot drop awaits her. Luckily for this girl a crowd of strangers and park employees gather in hopes of catching her.
Take a look at the video below thanks to Loren Lent on Facebook.
Now even though the unidentified girl hit a tree branch on the way down, she was not seriously injured and is in stable condition at the Albany Medical Center.
After the incident investigators assisted by park personnel inspected the ride and the car the teen girl had used and discovered that everything was in proper working order. They also discovered that all safety equipment was intact and operational at the time of the incident, this according to the sheriff’s office said.
So there’s a big possibility that this girl decided to be an idiot and leave her seat during the ride — which is probably the case, and probably why she ended up hanging from her neck. Not a bright move, kid.
But she’s fine, so now we can laugh at her.
