Police confirmed that a girl’s feet were severed when the Superman Tower of Power ride malfunctioned at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville.
A cord wrapped around the girl’s feet severed them at her ankles. The girl was taken to a local hospital.
“We saw the cable just snap,” a witness said. “And as it was coming down, it snapped again and then the people on the ride came and just hit the ground. When I went up there, the lady she was just sitting there and she didn’t have any legs. She didn’t have any legs at all. She was just calm, probably in shock for everything.”
