One of the girls is in more critical condition than first reported; sad.

Anyone know what happened?
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

CNN is reporting it as a mechanical flaw, but no details have been cited.

Was reading about the other accident at the water park and of course Ken Martin had his say in that.

Rivets holding a trim piece failed, allowing the trim piece to get caught up in the rim or spoke--keeping the gondola from rotating.
