Posted | Contributed by PhantomTails

Maikon Bonani, 20, was working Saturday at the Skyride attraction at Busch Gardens Tampa. After sending passengers on a gondola out of the station, he thought the door might be unlocked and held onto the door to check it while guests sat on the ride, according to a park statement. He held on as the gondola took off - then 35 feet above the ground - let go and dropped into a landscaped area, the statement added.
