Though we're told amusement parks take so many precautions that rollercoasters only feel dangerous, occasionally the worst does happen.
Just this Thursday evening, two people were thrown off a rollercoaster in Daytona Beach when a car derailed. The riders dropped 34 feet, and the two other passengers were left dangling over the Daytona Beach Boardwalk for over half an hour.
The Daytona Beach Fire Department rescued 10 people from the ride in total. The two passengers who fell were reportedly alert when taken to the hospital, which CNN reports "received nine patients." All but two of them were discharged by Friday afternoon.
Shockingly, the ride had passed a safety inspection that very morning. Though it had failed two inspections in May, those problems were said to have been addressed. After the incident, it was inspected yet again and listed as deficient, with "structural integrity: other," according to CNN.
