A Tragedy @ Six Flaggz
Body: A terrible tragedy has happened yesterday June 21, 2007 @ our local amusement park Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom.
Today around 4:45pm est the ride Superman aka hellivator malfunctioned. The ride takes you up about 177ft in the air and you free fall going about 56mph. On the descend a cable breaks and from the force of wind it wraps around BOTH legs of a 13 yr old girl from right above the ankles and litterally RIPS them off.
As of right now I don't know the current condition of the little girl. She's been in surgery for a few hours. I'm asking everyone to pray for this girl and her family.
This is no hoax. You can go to whas11.com our local station and read all about it. THE ARTICLE IS CALLED "Inspection begins after girl's legs severed". Please pray for her and her family. Post this as much as you can so everyone on myspace can eventually read this and say a prayer. I felt compelled to do this so I am. Thank you all!!

 I read about this shortly after it happened. That's really scary, they closed down alot of those rides throughout the country.

 I SAW THAT ON THE NEWS, BUT I DID NOT REALIZE THE GIRL WAS ONLY 13. OMG! THAT IS SOOOOOO HORRIBLE.

 WE WERE THERE JUST 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THAT, AND I GUESS LUCKILY MY SON WAS TOO SHORT FOR THAT PARTICULAR RIDE, SO WE DID NOT GO ON THAT ONE.  SO IM PRAYING FOR HER AND I THANK GOD FOR SPARING US THAT TRAGEDY.

The day before this happened my friend & I were planning our trip to the local 6 Flags here (MO) and I was mortified.  I have prayed for this girl and her family since I heard about the tragedy on my cnn.com breaking news email!  God will be with her!
