Girls Feet Severed in Amusement Park Accident

Accidents resulting from negligence are becoming common everywhere. Only last fortnight it was reported that a college-going girl fell from a height of 15 ft during a joyride and sustained grievous injuries in Chennai, capital of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

But for a tree branch which checked her fall, she would have crashed to death. There were no first aid facilities available, it was reported.

Now comes the news that a 13-year-old girl had her feet severed in an accident on an amusement park in Kentucky. Her condition in a Nashville hospital, Tennesse is stable.

Kaitlyn Lasitter, the girl, was riding the Superman Tower of Power ride Thursday at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville when a cable broke loose on the ride, cutting off the girl's feet above the ankles, authorities said.

State officials were investigating the incident.

"The parents of Kaitlyn Lasitter would like to acknowledge everyone across the country that have been supporting their daughter with many positive thoughts and prayers over the last six days," according to a statement, issued by the family.

Authorities and the hospital have declined to say whether her feet were reattached. The statement included a plea for privacy for the girl's family, and the family has instructed the hospital not to comment further.

The family's statement said no one from the theme park had contacted them since the accident, as park representatives had told reporters. "At no time has any representative of the theme park been in touch with members of the family," the statement said.

Wendy Goldberg, a spokeswoman for Six Flags in New York, disputed that account. Goldberg said two representatives from Kentucky Kingdom went to the hospital following the accident and stayed for "some time" before the Lasitter family asked them to leave. She would not say who the representatives were.

"We are deeply saddened
