AUSTELL, Ga.  —  A teenager was killed at the Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday when he hopped a pair of fences into a restricted area and was struck by the theme park's popular Batman roller coaster, authorities said.

The accident took place at approximately 2 p.m.

Park spokeswoman Hela Sheth said in a news release the 17-year-old scaled two six-foot fences that were clearly marked with signs that read "Danger" and "Do Not Enter."

...

A teenager's legs were severed when cables snapped on the Superman Tower of Power ride at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville in June 2007. Doctors were able to reattach Kaitlyn Lasitter's right foot, but she had to have some of her left leg amputated and subsequent surgeries.

there was a guy that got into a wreck because he put the cruise control on, "supposedly" thinking it would control the van he was in, and went to the back of the vehicle. he won the lawsuit against the company because he said that the manual for the vehicle did not say that cruise control does not control the vehicle.

so tell me this idiots family wont win.

All this "hearing" makes it seem like an urban legend.

the only thing that makes it not seem like an urban legend is that there are people that stupid.

>_> it seems like there are more important things going on that are brushed over in the news. A couple lives are barely statistic worthy.

I completely agree, and suggest a new forum labeled "Tabloid News." I'll make a post in the Staff Forum.

Except for me.

I didn't read the article, but based on the context of the posts I've read, I'm assuming they're suing? I don't think they should win. We all have the capacity to kill ourselves whenever, and for the most part, wherever we want. There is no way to make anything 100% safe.

I don't believe people who can make it far enough in life to get a license, yet crash due to a misunderstanding of cruise control (and not figure out what it is in time to avoid a crash) really deserve to live. We should take away excessive safety measures so that stupid people die off to at least some degree. I don't want the human race to devolve into a bunch of morons, but it might be too late for that.

As for the cable-snapping thing, that is unfortunate.
