Mother killed in Six Flags roller coaster accident

A roller coaster accident in a Six Flags amusement park in Arlington, Texas killed a woman after she fell from her seat on the evening of Friday, July 19.

A witness who saw the fall said Rosy Esparza was riding the Texas Giant with her son when she asked an employee is she was secured before the ride. Despite the employee saying she should be fine, Esparza fell from the ride after raising her arms when the roller coaster dropped down.

Experts were sent by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides to help figure out what happened to Esparza. Additionally, Six Flags spokespeople have stated that the park plans to exert all efforts to find out what the cause of the tragic accident was.

The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions said that rides are generally safe with very minimal chances of getting injured or killed.

The legal team at Ravid & Associates, P.C., sends their thoughts to the family and friends affected by this devastating loss.
