Great job, ABC. It wasn't dramatic enough until attaching this sentence at the end:

"Last month, a Dallas woman died after falling 75 feet when she was ejected from her third-row seat while riding the 14-story Texas Giant roller coaster at the Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington"

Thanks. I know to avoid these death machines now.

Kids always scare the crap out of me on rides. You simply never know what they are thinking. Rambunctious ones will stand up without warning...
