Teen hurt after dropping from ride at Six Flags

It's not clear how the victim, a 14-year-old visitor from DE, slipped free, but local police confirmed that she's now at the nearby Albany Medical Center, in stable condition and with no serious injuries.

The Sheriff's Office did not say what the girl was doing and how she ended up hanging from the ride in the first place. "Thank god she was there because maybe her neck would have got hurt".

One man climbed a tree in an attempt to move branches out of the way while others huddled together below the ride, preparing to catch the girl when she fell. She then let go, struck a tree, then fell into the arms of workers and guests. Howard was treated for minor back injuries after the incident.

Great escape said the New York State Labor Department cleared the ride for operation but the park will keep it closed during an internal review.

Six Flags spokeswoman Rebecca Wood released a statement saying, "Saturday evening a guest fell from a chair on the sky ride".

"No-one wants to put himself underneath a body like that, but I couldn't stand by and watch".

"It's awesome you know I mean as I keep saying too God put us in the right place at the right time, you know we were able to do something good and we saved a child's life", Winchell said.

Ms Winchell, who is applying to be a nurse, said they visited the girl on Sunday at the hospital and she was in good spirits. Video shows the gondola continued moving for a short time before a park attendant signaled to an operator to stop the ride.

The girl was not seriously injured and was in stable condition Sunday morning at the Albany Medical Center, the Warren County Sheriff's Office said.

Still, theme park ride-related accidents can be horrifying when they do occur, and more than 1,000 injuries on such rides have been logged each year between 2003 and 2015, according to the National Safety Council report.

Officials later inspected the ride and said it was in proper working order - but it remains closed while a thorough review is completed.
