After Accident, Six Flags May Tear Down 'Superman' Ride

Officials at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom want to tear down a ride where a girl's feet were severed earlier this year.

Back in June, Kaitlyn Lasitter lost both of her feet when a cable snapped on “The Superman Tower of Power."

Surgeons were able to re-attach her right foot, but her left leg had to be amputated just below her knee. Her family is suing the park.

Lassiter's family says the ride is evidence, but the park wants to tear it down before the next season begins in February.

A hearing on the issue is set for December 14th.
