Teenage girl falls eight metres from amusement park ride in NY

Girl falling from ride at 6 Flags Great Escape and they have NO means to rescue them. She remains there, authorities said, in stable condition and with no serious injuries.

After being treated by Six Flags emergency medical personnel, according to News10, the girl was taken to Glens Falls Hospital and then to Albany Medical Center, where she is now being treated.

Some bystanders made a decision to do something and they got together and told the girl they could catch her and to wiggle loose.

The ride was inspected by officials and found to be in proper working order, a park official said.

The State Department of Labor cleared it for operation, but the park is keeping it closed while they do an internal review.

Her little brother was shaken up but uninjured otherwise, she said. Thankfully, a group of park guests and security people were below to catch her.

The operator stopped the slow moving gondoala-style attraction sometime around 8-p-m after receiving a radio transmission from park staff on the ground about a rider who was in distress.

A crowd began to form, with dozens of people capturing the moment on video.

Mourners console one another as the hearse carrying Otto Wambire departs for the cemetery after a funeral service. Until Friday, North Korea had said only that it released the young man on "humanitarian grounds".

"My daughter was just traumatised", he said.

"I'm just glad we could be there to help", Ms Winchell said. "I thought if I got in there, at least we could do something".

The girl lets go and is caught by the pair to cheers and applause. Another man climbed into a nearby tree to see if he could reach the girl.

She was treated by park emergency medical personnel at the scene and transported to Glens Falls Hospital.

The Sheriff's Office said the girl fell from the vehicle, hit a tree as she fell. The video showed onlookers cheering after the girl was caught and then the girl being carried away, limp.

The girl did let go and fall, hitting a thicket of tree branches on the way down.

She was rushed to hospital after falling from the gondola ride but has not sustained any serious injuries. The girl remained hospitalized Sunday.
