Now if this really happened as they said it did, then why didn't the dumb fuck raise hell then about it?

I think back to to working 2 seasons at WOF .
We were High school teens in charge of operating very temperamental roller coasters.
I sur the employees became complacent, since there were no major incidences.
Im sure they sent numerous rafts down the slide ,underweight,harnesses that didn't quite catch.
I hope they fully investigate how employees are trained , rides inspected and that safety is the number one priority , whether its a water park or a loca amusement park or carnival
This did not have to happen , but it was waiting to happen .

Reported this exact article - minus the photo, just the existence of photo since photo couldn't be posted in comments - yesterday. Delighted the truth is getting out there. The shitbag that designed and oversaw the operation of this hunk of horseshit deserves to not only lose every fucking thing he owns, but also to be imprisoned.

To the person with the first comment and others - it appears others did experience the same exact thing many, many times and a number did report it - and the shitbag owner/operators obviously ignored it.

One reason this small metro has a disproportionately large number of potential lethal amusement-park rides is that it is in two backward states where there is less government inspection and less government regulation than in most others.
