Rosy Esparza was visiting Six Flags in Texas for the first time on Friday. As she was riding the Texas Giant, which is the tallest steel-hybrid roller coaster in the world, somehow she fell out. The cause of the fall is still being investigated, but there has been much speculation as to what happened in that short, tragic ride. Several witnesses have stated that her belt came loose or broke as she was riding and they saw her fall from the sky. When the train came back into the loading dock, two people were screaming that they needed to go get her mom because she was gone.
The Texas Giant has been closed down until further notice pending a full investigation. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Rosy.
Six Flags released this statement, "We are committed to determining the cause of this tragic accident and will utilize every resource throughout this process. It would be a disservice to the family to speculate regarding what transpired. When we have new information to provide, we will do so. Our thoughts, prayers and full support remain with the family."
