In a grisly, freak accident on Thursday, a 13 year-old girl lost her legs when the Superman: Tower of Power ride she was on had a cable snap, whipping in the air and severing the child's legs. According to WLKY-
“As the ride came down, the wire swung left, struck the young lady on the back side of my children,” Williams said. Williams’ daughter Amber said she gave up her seat to the 13-year-old and was sitting on the other side of the ride. Williams rushed toward the ride to find his daughter. As Smith raced to find members of her group, she said she made a gruesome discovery. “When I got up there, the lady, she was just sitting there and she didn’t have no legs,” Smith said. “She didn’t have no legs at all. She was just calm, probably in shock from everything.”
So far there is no word on the girl's condition. The ride has been shutdown pending a full investigation and has also been removed from the Six Flags website.
