    Those two had no chance, they were bound to fall out.

    Strange how, after decades of coaster technology advance, there has not been any progress in developing a restraint that might prevent this tragedy happening over and over again...

    Screw technology. I don't mind when they fall out, so long as it's on camera. Does that make me a bad person?

    It's pretty low quality, so I'd call it SEFW (safe enough for work)

    The twins do make an appearance, so you might want to be safe. Your call, your job.

    I saw a cpuple look a likes just last night. But being as illusive as they are I couldn't tell if it was the same couple. Rumor has it they made it through this tragic accident though.

    Breaking News: Update, this just in you will all be happy to hear these two have made a remarkable and astonishing full recovery. A lesson learned said the two in a recent exclusive interview said the associated press.

    Well, that's a creative way to get around Youtube's content filtering. I wonder how long it will stay up for.

    Yes such is the case in this day and age with cameras mounted everywhere. I just fear for their loved ones and what they have to go through over and over and over.

    I heard the N.R.C.S.C. [National Roller Coaster Safety Committee] are planning on using this video as an example for future coaster builds. As gruesome as it is future coaster technicians can learn from this tragedy. And build safer roller coasters so future generations won't have to fall witness to such a horrible event.

    There are some excellent test subjects for this initiative over in the So 2 thread. How much angular momentum is required to remove an ample bussom from a string bikini is the real question that needs to be asked.

    Mookie I'm appalled at you and Ray's lighthearted attitude to this tragic freak accident. Sure could society benefit from such testing of course. But lets first deal with what's at hand first. A couple have been thrust from their restraints and tragically jostled about. Who knows what the long term effectt will be. Both emotionally and physically and not just for the two involved but to onlookers as well. Once we all get past this initial shock then and only then can we concentrate on testing for future generations.

    Yes of course there are tragedies in life. Yes a couple may have popped out of their safe place only to be wildly jostled about. But shouldn't we try to learn from this? I believe that we must put more resources into this and thoroughly research the problem. Yes, do it for the children. They are our future after all!

    Since this problem requires immediate attention, I would like to appoint myself director of research. I'll be over in So 2 looking for suitable test subjects.
