Apparently, on May 31, a Six Flags employee was working on one of the park’s attractions. The employee was placed in a harness and lifted quite high. Somehow, due to human or technical error, the worker’s foot got stuck and was eventually “cut off”.

A guest has shared a shocking and graphic photo he took of the aftermath. The photo captured the worker hanging from his harness with his entire left foot missing. The picture is linked herebut we warn you again that the photo is incredibly graphic and can be considered disturbing.

The specific ride appears to be the Dare Devil Chaos Coaster. In the Youtube video link below, you can see what appears to be this employee being carried away on a stretcher:

In the comments section, one user claims to have visited the park during this incident, saying:

For those wondering, I was there that day as a guest and overheard many other guests saying that a maintenance man was working on the Dare Devil ride and he committed a fault, fell and cut his foot, apparently a lot of people saw it too. I don’t know if that’s the exact case, but if so, that’s really interesting because it’s very rare for a ride to break down like that when a maintenance person is working on it because from what i know they have to go through a lot of protocols of shutting off the power to the amusement ride before they work on it.

At the time of publishing this article, we do not know the condition of the injured worker or how the situation actually began. We also don’t know what happened after the employee was carried away in the stretcher shown in the video above. We’ll update our story when/if more information comes out.
