Woman Falls from Roller Coaster at Magic Springs

JULY 31, 2006 - Posted at 8:16 a.m. CDT

 

HOT SPRINGS, AR - Hot Springs authorities say a Tennessee woman was injured when she fell from a small roller coaster ride at the Magic Springs amusement park.

Police say 45-year-old Felicia Robinson of Memphis was riding the Twist and Shout Saturday afternoon when centrifugal force pushed her out of the car she was riding in.  Police say she fell about 15 feet from the ride; an amusement park official said it was ten feet.

Robinson was taken to a local hospital and was listed in stable condition.  The Arkansas Labor Department dispatched a ride inspector to inspect the ride.  The accident was the first the park has had since it reopened under new ownership six years ago.  Park officials say the rides are inspected every day and are safe.
