I've read the news stories which report little, but unofficially...
Did anyone hear how this child could have fallen out of the gondola without doing something that she should not have been doing? and why an 11 year old child was on this 40 story ride alone? Where the hell were the chaperons? I heard she fainted--could she have leaned over, looked down, fainted and tumbled over the rail? How tall was this 11year old child?
It's such a tragedy. I'm haunted by it because it was so preventable.
I only hope that if they now want more regulations to prevent a "freak accident" like this that they simply institute new rules for children, and don't change the character of he ride with more restraints and cages.
