    A young girl went to Six Flags Kentucky and took a ride on the Superman drop with some friends. Before the ride got to the top, they heard a cable snap, looked up, and saw the cables coming from all parts of the ride, whipping around and injuring their faces. This was only 20 feet off the ground. As the ride started to take them higher, they started seeing black smoke and smelling burned rubber. The girls all yelled "stop the ride!" repeatedly, cables all over them, even around their necks. When the girls landed on the ground, one of them smelled burning flesh. It was her severed feet. One of the girls ended up losing both feet and half a leg to this accident.
