Texas Giant incident[edit]

I reverted your recent edit at Incidents at Six Flags parks. Multiple reliable sources confirm the statements made by the eyewitness, and it should be acceptable to include it until we have more information from the investigation. We are assigning credit for the claim to the eyewitness, which is supported by the cited refs. The revised statement you proposed, "there may have been issues with the ride's restraint system not being securely locked" is not supported by these references. In fact, one of the references states that a family waiting behind the victim in line believes the restraints went down normally and when the coaster returned, the restraint was still down. --GoneIn60 (talk) 16:17, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, it turns out a tweet from one of the riders supports the claim that the restraint may have released during the ride. One of the original refs was updated by the publisher to reflect that, and a new ref altogether was added to the article as well also confirming the tweet. --GoneIn60 (talk) 03:52, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
