Well, a 20 year-old can't wiggle free from the restraint system, but maybe the operator didn't latch it correctly. Another possiblity is maybe the girl had a seizure from the flashing lights. But it would be her fault if they had warning of this. Does anyone know if there is a sign warning of this?

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

This death seems like a different occurrence though.

Incredible. what a horrible case of miscommunication, with fatal results. Don't they yell "clear" or something?

My thought's exactly. Whenever I go to Hershey or Knoebels they do a thumbs up signal. If the new ride operator didn't wait for it and just started the ride, it should be his fault for carelessly not waiting for it to be safe to start the ride.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I'm wondering if any type of legal action will be taken against the op. At the least the family will file a lawsuite against Rye Playland.

What kind of ride is this? At first, I was picturing something like one of those Gravitron rides like they have at fairs and carnivals, but then when I read the new report it almost sounded like an Octopus (or at KI Monster) type ride.

I agree that it seems crazy that the ride op on duty wasn't paying any better attention.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Does anyone know if Johnny moved from California to New York after the Kidtums incident?
