This would not be a good thing...people say bad things happen in threes...hopefully that's all for the accidents.

Sorry, I had to run to school real quick, but here’s some more info: The Person (Still not know whether or not he was an employee, but who else would be at the park this early in the morning?) was life-flighted to the nearest hospital. We do not know the extent of his injuries, but I’d say since they flew him out, it’s safe to say he fell from a tall part of the ride. We do not know if he was actually in one of the trains, but do know he fell from some part of it.

This is the third accident at a Six Flags park in as many days.

It says he fell off a scaffolding which is far, far different from falling from the ride itself.

While their employee safety procedures may come under state and OSHA review, this has nothing to do with ride safety.

(relieved that he can still count X-Flight in the CPlaya 100)

Sounds like someone didn't tie themselves off to the ride, but I don't think that's all too necessary when you're on a catwalk.
