LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Crews are dismantling an amusement park
ride that amputated a teenager's feet last summer.
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom began taking down the Superman Tower
of Power ride on Wednesday, eight months after a cable snapped and
cut off 14-year-old Kaitlyn Lasitter's feet.
Kentucky Kingdom spokeswoman Carolyn McLean declined to say what
will become of the ride or if anything will go in its place when
the park reopens in the spring.
Lasitter and her family are suing Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom,
claiming the park failed to maintain the ride and equipment and
ensure riders' safety. In court filings, the amusement park has
denied liability in the accident.
