The accident happened on the Sky Ride at Six Flags Great Escape Amusement Park, about 55 miles (89 kilometers) north of Albany, New York.

However, it remained closed Sunday while the park conducts an internal review, spokeswoman Rebecca Wood said. "Thank god she was there because maybe her neck would have got hurt".
