Idiot kid scales not one, but TWO six foot fences into a restricted area at 6 Flags over Georgia to get a hat he lost on a Batman roller coaster.
He ended up getting decapitated by the same roller coaster.
If getting decapitated because you were looking for a hat isn’t irony, I don’t know what is.
What I find sad about this, is that 6 flags will probably get sued.
I nominate this for the Darwin award of the year.
No fair! He got a head start!
I was sad I had no hat until I met a man who had no head.
Before I get yelled at. It is indeed a terrible thing to have happened, I feel sorry for his family. His parents were there, I hope they didn’t have to witness it.
Reminds me of the incident in Catch-22 where one pilot buzzes the beach and someone on the beach decides to jump to touch the plane.
He got a propeller, instead.
ahem… head 'em off at the pass!
“Police have declined to release the teenager’s name until an autopsy is completed.”
Hell, I’m half the world away, and I think I could determine the cause of death from here. Why would they conduct an autopsy, to check whether his behavior was drug- or alcohol- related?
Not a good time to lose one’s head.
That’s not the way to get ahead in life.
It’s a shame he wasn’t more headstrong.
He’ll never be the head of a major corporation.
Okay, that’ll do.
If he’d been riding the coasters all day and screaming as so many do…
there is a fair chance he may be the headless hoarse-man.
He lost his hat…
So he was decapitated after being de-cap-itated. Twice in one day has to be some kind of record.
Ah, those days of heady youth…
I wonder if the coaster has working headlights?
I think I see where this thread is heading.
He can buy a new one at a head shop.
He should have called tails.
One of the news stories reported that they could not say whether or not he expired immediately or at the hospital. :eek:
Maybe he was making eye contact.
