Girls feet lopped off at the ankles by Superman ride at Six Flags

Police confirmed that a 13-year-old girl's feet have been cut off at Six Flags' Kentucky Kingdom. Officials said they got the call around 5 p.m. Thursday. Both her feet were detached at the ankle.

Apparently the girl was riding the Superman Tower of Power (formerly known as the Hellevator), which is 177 feet tall and drops riders at 54 miles per hour. The girl was injured when the ride malfunctioned.

“We seen the cable break loose soon as it got to the top on the right-hand side,” said Chris Williams, who witnessed the event and saw the teen get maimed.

“The people on the ride just came and hit the ground and as the ride came down, the wire swung left, struck the young lady on the back side of my children,” Williams said. The back side of your what?!

Williams’ daughter Amber said she gave up her seat to the 13-year-old and was sitting on the other side of the ride. Wow. There's fate. Go play lotto, little one.

Williams rushed toward the ride to find his daughter. “When I got up there, the lady, she was just sitting there and she didn’t have no legs.

“She didn’t have no legs at all. She was just calm, probably in shock from everything.” Wow.
