Amusement Park Terror: Teen Falls 25 Feet Off Six Flags Ride

So there's a big possibility that this girl made a decision to be an idiot and leave her seat during the ride - which is probably the case, and probably why she ended up hanging from her neck.

A 14-year-old girl was injured when she dropped from a ride Saturday night at a Six Flags amusement park in upstate NY, the sheriff's office said.

The girl soon lost her grip and dropped down to where the father and daughter were waiting, with the pair breaking the girl's fall, as they tumbled to the ground themselves.

Witnesses are heard screaming "her neck is stuck" and "they'll catch you, honey" moments before she fell into the arms of visitors and security personnel.

The crowd erupted into cheers and clapping as the girl was rushed by staff to an awaiting golf-buggy to take her for medical treatment.

The scene was caught on video by Loren Lent, from Glenville.

According to the Warren County Sheriff's Office, the teenage girl from Greenwood, Delaware was taken to Albany Medical Centre and is in stable condition with no serious injuries.

"Girl falling from ride at 6 Flags Great Escape and they have NO means to rescue them".

"Because if she was going to fall you know I wanted to be there to at least do whatever I could to try to save this girl", Winchell said.

Howard was also briefly hospitalized for a back injury. Around 8 p.m., she fell out of the ride and was hanging onto the edge. "No one wants to put himself underneath a body like that, but I couldn't stand by and watch".

She said the teenager was in good spirits.

"As my dad went down I held her up and passed her along", Winchell said.

Howard is just happy he and his daughter were among those on the ground below.

After the incident investigators assisted by park personnel inspected the ride and the vehicle the teen girl had used and discovered that everything was in proper working order. The park said in a statement that the safety of guests is a top priority.

Officials inspected the ride and said it was in proper working order. "We are reviewing our internal procedures to ensure the safety and security of our guests and team members".
