An incredible video captured the moment a 14-year-old girl fell from a ride at Six Flags on Saturday only to be caught by guests at the park.

As of Monday, police had not yet interviewed the girl, but medical tests have ruled out a medical problem as the cause of her fall, according to Stokedale. The two took the brunt of the girl's fall, tumbling to the ground themselves after the catch.

The teen is in stable condition and did not experience any serious injuries, according to a statement from the Warren County Sheriff's Office.

A frantic crowd gathered below her, understanding she was seconds away from dying or seriously injuring herself.

"I promise I'll catch you", he insisted.

Police said it appears the teen's actions, not mechanical malfunctions, caused her to slip under a metal restraining bar on the Sky Ride gondola while riding with her brother Saturday at Six Flags Great Escape.

Gasoline, however, remained one of the biggest upward contributors to inflation last month despite the weakened price growth. CPI common, which the central bank says is the best gauge of the economy's underperformance, held at 1.3 percent.

Howard told the girl to fall and promised he'd catch her.

Her experience on Sky Ride, which is a half ski-lift, half gondola ride, was going horribly wrong.

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — A 14-year-old DE girl who survived falling off a NY amusement park ride has been released from a hospital.

Stockdale said the victim and her family - from Greenwood, Del. - haven't been cooperating with the investigation and have hired an attorney. He said he wouldn't be surprised if they didn't add safety belts or other safety restrictions on the ride in future. "We were in the right place at the right time". It is unclear why the girl was hanging.

Hansen said even though the park had permission to re-open the ride, park officials kept it closed "out of an abundance of caution".

Park officials said the ride was working properly.
