Teen caught after fall from amusement park ride

"I couldn't let that little girl die", Howard told the Associated Press.

A witness, Loren Lent, who was waiting to snap a photo of a family member as they passed overhead on the same ride, captured the ordeal on video and later uploaded the footage to Facebook.

Instead, he filmed a tense, life-threatening situation.

"That was a very good idea", he said.

They are just glad the girl is ok.

Stockdale said in an email that "it looks like she's going to be ok". The girl dangled briefly while her brother held her, screaming for help.

Then, the video shows her dangling 25 feet from the ground.

A teenage girl has dropped eight metres (25ft) from a theme park ride, into a crowd of people trying to catch her.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office says the 14-year-old victim doesn't have any serious injuries and remains at Albany Medical Center.

USA Today has reported that a 47-year-old, one of the assembled crowd who caught the teenager, also had to go to the hospital, due to a back injury.

"It's not something that you could just slip out of", Spiegel said. He estimated the girl had been dangling for at least 90 seconds and possibly even a few minutes.

"I said: "It's OK!" He was hurt as he attempted to catch the falling girl.

But the spokesman, whom state news did not identify, said that American doctors who flew to Pyongyang to evacuate Mr. He said North Korea's treatment of Warmbier demonstrated "a basic disregard for human rights, for human dignity".

The accident happened on the Sky Ride at Six Flags Great Escape Amusement Park, about 55 miles (89 kilometers) north of Albany, New York.

The ride's operator brought it to a stop after receiving a radio transmission from park staff on the ground that a rider was in distress, according to the report.

The park opened in 1954 as Storytown USA and was acquired in 1996 by Premier Parks, which later bought and changed its name to Six Flags.

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.

Hansen said even though the park had permission to re-open the ride, park officials kept it closed "out of an abundance of caution". It's called the "sky ride", and it's among the park's longtime attractions.
