Rosy Esparza was with her family at Six Flags when the unthinkable happened. She fell
out of the roller coaster. Most people were in shock because there are
many safety regulations and precautions taken into account when building
these rides. After the incident they took all necessary actions and closed

restraint bars. Although the death of Ms. Esparza is tragic, sometimes
events like this spark companies and people to be more careful, conversation
over safety has been sparked and will hopefully save future lives.
