Okay, just found this video on YouTube...a news "opinion" segment about the SFoG Batman decapitation incident on "Kelly''s Court" and found it highly entertaining. Haha.
Watch as the "defense" lawyer and the host of the show team up against the woman who thinks there is a case against Six Flags for the boy's death. They pretty much make her look like the biggest idiot and rip her a new one.
It's hilarious...and also makes you want to reach into your screen and slap that purple-blouse wearing lady.Monday, October 6, 2008 10:58 PM
The guys is right though. What more could Six Flags do? Fences are there for a REASON, signs are printed and posted fora REASON.
This is certainly a case of personal judgment. It was bad mistake, and Six Flags did everything in their power to stop it.
The worker who died on the ride's site. Was it a fall, or the coaster train hitting him that killed him? I am unsure. Could someone please elaborate?
And the "four deaths" at the same park. In all due respect, what does that have to do with what happened? Nothing. Was Six Flags at fault for any of them? Probably not. Who knows what happened, aneurysms, heart attacks, I don't know: chocking on a freakkin hot dog.
It's stupid to think that there is more that Six Flags could have done, this is purely someone trying to convince themselves that there is a lawsuit in everything that has ever happens in life.
"We could have a busload of nuns watch the fence for 24 hours." LOL.
Wouldn't work. We'd have people kvetching about how all religions aren't represented equally.

I don't know who Kelly is, and boo on her for having anything to do with Fox News, but she used the words "B&M Roar."
That's pretty awesome.
When did David Schwimmer become a defense attorney?

Well, we did note that S:UF at GAdv now has *barbed wire* around all the low-to-the-ground maneuvres. Had to wonder if this isn't true (or soon true) on all inverts and flyers at (at least) the following: oG, MM, GAm, and MM. Should SF need to go to these extremes? Does barbed wire add to the so-called "charm"? Does the clickety-click of the lift mean anything to people walking under/around coaster tracks?
I'm going to assume that the maintenance guy getting killed probably had to do with an improper lockout/tagout procedure. From working as a lead at SFGAm, it was just common sense to a) not touch the ride if maintenance didn't sign off the proper documents and b) not touch the ride if there's a lockout/tagout since those can only be removed by the person who put them on the ride in the first place.
In the end, the guy made a good point...it's common sense, yeah it seems okay to put some people around the area to "watch" the ride, but then prices will go up again. Not to mention, Six Flags already was following the ASTM for ride fencing/signage. If it ain't broke...don't fix it. You can always go above and beyond expectation, but I'm sure people like that ornary woman would still find something to file suit on because that's the way some Americans are.
Case in point....like Kelly and the guy said, it comes down to taking personal responsibility. I'm sure if you questuioned the same lady about the accidient at SFMM, she'd say the same thing. The fencing wasn't enough to keep someone out from retrieving their hat.
The reporter mentioned the B&M "roar!" Someone did their research.
It's simply a bad habit to get into.
