Video shows the girl dangling from the cable car ride at Six Flags Great Escape theme park in Queensbury, New York yesterday (June 24).

A crowd of people gather underneath the Sky Ride gondola car as the teen desperately tries to hold on.

But her grip fails and she drops, hitting a tree before being caught by those underneath her.

The slow-moving ride had been halted after reports of someone in distress.

THEME PARK HORROR: The girl can be seen falling from the Sky Ride at Six Flags


“This does not appear to be any malfunction of the ride, but we have closed the attraction for further review.”


Six Flags spokeswoman Jessica Hansen

Police and emergency medical services were sent to the park at 8:05 p.m.

The girl was treated by park emergency medics at the scene and transported to a nearby hospital.

She was later taken by helicopter to Albany Medical Center where she was reported to be in a stable condition with no serious injuries reported.

A 47-year-old man, also a guest at the park, was taken to hospital and treated for a back injury as he was attempting to catch the falling victim, but later released.

Investigators inspected the ride and the car the girl was in and reported everything was in proper working order and all safety equipment was intact and operational.

“The safety and security of our guests is our top priority,” park spokeswoman Jessica Hansen told the Post Star.

“This does not appear to be any malfunction of the ride, but we have closed the attraction for further review.”

She added the park was gathering more information.

It comes as people were left trapped in the air when a ride at Alton Towers broke down.
