Mom dies after falling from roller coaster at Six Flags in Texas, witnesses say

snipped:

"They didn't secure her right. One of the employees from the park -- one of the ladies -- she asked her to click her more than once, and they were like, `As long you heard it click, you're OK.' Everybody else is like, `Click, click, click.' Hers only clicked once. Hers was the only one that went down once, and she didn't feel safe, but they let her still get on the ride," Brown told The Dallas Morning News.

MyFoxDFW.com reported that fire crews had to use a ladder truck to get to the platform below the roller coaster where the woman's body had fallen.
