Developments in Kentucky Superman Ride Case

Excerpts from a ride operator's deposition have been released, and they suggest that the cable snap (that ultimately severed a girl's feet) occurred before the ride carriage dropped -- at least the operator was clearly attempting to stop the ride, which can't occur when the ride is already dropping.  The story also notes that two of Ms. Lassiter's friends reported being struck by the cable as well, with minor injuries.

The cable inspection results are expected next week.
