This is why I don’t go on roller coasters. Rosy Esparza, a woman from Dallas, Texas, fell off the Texas Giant and died. She was visiting Six Flags Over Texas in the city of Arlington when the accident occurred. Tragically, she was sitting next to at least one of her children when the ride’s safety mechanism apparently failed.

Witnesses say that the woman suspected something was wrong before the ride even started but that Six Flags employees brushed off her worries. If that’s true, the company better get ready to pay the family millions of dollars in damages. This kind of accident should never happen — especially as a result of human error.
