Dramatic Fall From NY Six Flags 'Sky Ride' Caught on Camera

26 June 2017

A 14-year-old girl visiting from DE survived a 25-foot fall from a stopped gondola ride at a Six Flags in upstate New York Saturday night.

Warren County sheriff's Lt. Steven Stockdale told The Post-Star of Glens Falls (http://bit.ly/2s9pG46 ) that "human error" on the part of the teen caused her to slip out of the two-person gondola, which traverses the popular summertime tourist attraction located in Queensbury, 55 miles (88 kilometers) north of Albany. As an unidentified teenage parkgoer dangled 25 feet above the ground, a crowd gathered below to catch her - which they did - once she fell.

He looked up to see a young girl dangling about 25ft off the ground from a slow-moving gondola ride.

"You should be right underneath to catch her", advises a woman to the growing crowd.

"There were a lot of people yelling and surprised as I was that there wasn't something that could be done faster to help", Lent said. The girl was hanging on well enough he felt they could have left it running for her to make it to a nearby platform, about a football field away, he said.

Despite their four defeats in the Kansas, Montana, South Carolina and Georgia specials, Democrats said they see a silver lining. Democrats may now have a similar conversation about Ossoff and whether - if he wants to run again - his is the best message.

A witness, Loren Lent, who was waiting to snap a photo of a family member as they passed overhead on the same ride, captured the ordeal on video and later uploaded the footage to Facebook.

Crowds which had gathered to watch the drama unfold cheered as the men took the girl to safety. The video showed onlookers cheering after the girl was caught and then the girl being carried away, limp.

Mr Howard, a contractor from Schenectady, was treated and released for a minor back injury after the rescue.

"It's OK to let go, I'll catch you, honey,"' Howard told the AP. She remains in stable condition with no serious injuries, police said.

"If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have been there", Howard said. I don't know how she got to hang off the ride, but ride safety is so important. "We were in the right place at the right time".

Chicago ranked 23rd in scoring and 24th in 3-point accuracy last season. "I give Tom a lot of credit", Paxson said. He averaged 5.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while going 17 out of 18 from the free throw line.

No word on how it happened yet, but a DE teenager is lucky to be alright after falling 25 feet from a gondola ride at an upstate New York Six Flags. The ride was stopped by an operator after getting word of a rider in distress, officials said.

Even Howard took out his phone at first, he admitted, but quickly handed it to one of his three daughters. "She was crying for about a half-hour after".

All rides have a standard evacuation plan, said Wood, the park spokeswoman.

Hansen said even though the park had permission to re-open the ride, park officials kept it closed "out of an abundance of caution".
