Has anyone heard anything about two fatalities on different Skycoasters at different parks yesterday? I'm not sure of the validity of the story (I can't seem to find a news story anywhere) but I know that everyone at the PKI Skycoaster was up in arms today checking all of the suits (especially the older ones) for problems. None of the supervisors knew the details, but apparently 2 people were killed yesterday on different rides, their deaths caused by the same type of suit malfunction. Can anyone verify this, or seen any strange behavior at any other Skycoaster today?

A search of Yahoo! News doesn't reveal anything at all.
Also, it seems that it would be a GI-NORMOUS coincidence that two people would die on the same ride, on the same day, due to the same thing.

I agree completely, maybe the supervisors were misinformed, but they were sure shook up about something...

While the deaths seem to be unlikely, they still could have happened, more than likely in another country other than the USA. As for two deaths, if they really did happen, then I would guess that they happened at the exact same time on the exact same sky coaster.

If there's hard news, we'll talk about it. Until then, it didn't happen.
