Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom officials defended their ride-maintenance procedures yesterday in the wake of new information released by the family of 14-year-old Kaitlyn Lasitter in their lawsuit against the park. The documents the Lasitters released to The Courier-Journal included laboratory tests on a ride cable that snapped last summer and severed Kaitlyn's feet, a deposition from the ride maintenance manager and the maintenance manual for the ride carrying Kaitlyn. The documents were obtained through the legal process but had not been added to the court file.
