This sounds like a scary scene from a movie. An unnamed teen was at Six Flags Great Escape in New York when she fell from her chair during her ride on the Sky Ride. Anything with the word “Sky” in it, doesn’t seem like an ideal thing to fall out of. It basically looks and runs like a ski lift, so how she fell out of it is beyond me.
According to People, she was dangling from the ride, holding on for dear life when a crowd of patrons and employees formed below her. When she let go, she first hit a tree and then was caught by the crowd below sustaining minor injuries. The ride has been cleared to operate but remains closed while an investigation is underway. The park did issue a sincere apology.
