Posted | Contributed by madfan0569

An apparent malfunction at Kings Island’s Son of Beast sent at least 27 thrill seekers to area hospitals late Sunday afternoon. As of 9:30 p.m. 17 had been released. None of the injuries were life-threatening. Some of the people on the ride declined being transported, said Maureen Kaiser, spokeswoman for the theme park. It was not immediately known what caused the roller coaster riders to complain of discomfort after the ride came to a stop. The ride was shut down at 4:45 p.m., Kaiser said.
