A safety harness that was not secured properly caused a Nashville woman to fall to her death from an amusement park ride, the attorney for the woman's family claims. June Carol Alexander, 51, died Sunday afternoon after she fell about 60 feet from a ride known as "The Hawk" at Rockin Raceway. The ride was in motion when the safety strap somehow came undone, authorities said.

An interesting change from the first reports. The first reports said that the victem was trying to get out of the ride. This report indicates that the restraint came loose and she was trying to hang on according to the observer.

Family friends (according to the last accident) said she tried to get off, now the attorney says the restraint was not secured.

I don't know if I like rides that rely so heavily on safety harnesses (basically rides that hang you upside down by the harness).
