- A girl's feet were cut off Thursday when a free-fall thrill ride malfunctioned at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville, Kentucky, police said.
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.
And she was just there, calm, probably in shock from everything."

HOW did this happen? Does anyone know? Do the authorities even know yet? This is the strangest thing I have read in a long time.

I'd imagine people noticing the girl missing her feet while she got off the ride...

Sounds like part of the script for one of the Final Destination movies. You don't suppose there is a photograph of her taken beforehand with a line running across her ankles do you?
Seriously though, that is a guarantee that Six Flags will be sued for negligence. I bet the ambulance chasers are waiting in the lobby of the hospital as we speak.
