Six Flags Darien Lake Failed to Report Coaster Incident to State

1 year ago

July 12, 2019 around 7:30pm, Tantrum, a Gerstlauer EuroFighter Roller Coaster, experienced a malfunction as a car embarked on the 90 degree vertical lift hill. The train came to a halt and despite multiple attempts by park personnel to clear faults and override system warnings from the... See More control system (each attempt advancing the car by one rollback click up the hill) riders had to be evacuated. Riders remained tightly restrained in the ride vehicles upwards of one hour and forty five minutes to two hours. In order to evacuate guests, a vertical lift attached to the ride base was brought up to the edge of the car.

A rear metal mesh panel was swung out from the lift across the back of the car to assist riders in the rear in the event of a mishap on exiting. From there, workers manually released rider restraints one at a time. Each rider then had to roll and/or climb over the individual bucket seats at a 90+ degree angle and maneuver around the lap bar and seat belt restraints while in a single gait belt style harness which was secured to the edge of the ride lift by a sturdy harness brace.

Rescue workers assisted the riders off the Rollercoaster one by one starting with the rear row of 4 going left to right across the cars, and ending with the front row of 4 in a left to right fashion. Once the first four riders were rescued the lift was lowered to let them disembark from the roller coaster before ascending to the top to retrieve the following four in the front car. At the exit of the ride, a worker took the names and numbers of involved guests and guests were given a water bottle and pass to skip the line of one ride of their choice.

The riders were stuck in a 90+ degree position (while the ride itself has a 90 degree lift hill in this section, the seats of the ride vehicles have additional pitching to increase the feeling of being upside down and suspended, resulting in further heightened pressure against the extremities and other section of the body by restraints in this position) for close to 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours, with the last rider having exited the ride close to 9pm.

According to multiple guests, the first riders were not informed that medical attention was available if needed and may not have been seen by the guests as they exited the ride. One to two guests requested medical attention at the park's front guest services department. The riders were subjected to undue attitude and questioning, in addition to being verbally ridiculed by the guest services agents before the service agents offered to call for medical attention.

One guest was sent home from the park in a wheelchair due to blood flow issues in their legs from the restraints on the roller coaster pressing against them for an extended period while at a 90+ degree angle, resulting in cold extremity on one side of the body, pain, and decreased sensation in the extremities also documented and recognized by the attending medical aids.

According to multiple other riders, at least one guest requiring a cane with various disabilities was denied assistance by a loved one from the exit of the ride, as security had emptied the section of the park and refused to allow the loved one or to bring the assistive device from the rider's loved one to the ride exit to assist them. This resulted in additional emotional and physical suffering of the rider as they were then required to walk a fair distance without any aid until they reached the security guard who refused to offer assistance.

In addition, the checks completed by ride operators include ensuring restraints are as tight fitting as possible by pressing down firmly and forcefully on the restraints often advancing the position of the restraint further. Restraints of course, do not loosen unless released by operators at the completion of the ride. However, because the ride was not able to complete its circuit, this resulted in further adverse events and possibility of unknown future adverse events due to hidden damage below the skin surface following the incident.

It was noted by multiple guests that the park seemed to be "concerned more about their status as a six flags park again and preventing recording or viewing by guests to avoid potential bad publicity than it did for the guests on and exiting the ride once rescued and removed." According to multiple guests this was not the first time this ride had stopped unexpectedly within the last 24 to 48 hours and has been a consistent problem with the ride since opening.

It should further be considered extremely important, dangerous, negligent, and reckless of maintenance workers to continue to advance the train despite ride safety system faults preventing the ride from advancing further. These attempts to further advance the coaster are in direct conflict to the manufacturer safety mechanisms put in place following incidents at a fellow Gerstlauer roller coaster, The Smiler at Alton Towers, England.

These systems were put into place following catastrophic occurrences in which limbs were lost and human life was endangered when maintenance operators overrode the ride's block system sending a car of guests careening into a stalled car further down the line. These overrides were specifically addressed by subsequent maintenance work and system upgrades by Gerstlauer, not just on The Smiler, but for all of their roller coaster models. Attempts to override this system are unconscionable.

Update as of July 1, 2021:
Following FOIA requests that were backed up due to COVID-19, I have been informed by the Attorney General's office that the park failed to report this incident to the inspecting body of NYS. There are no records when there certainly should be.

This is highly important as the very system that was attempted to be overridden was put into place to prevent catastrophic accidents from ocurring for a multitude of reasons. At The Smiler before this system had a safe guard added, mechanics were able to override the fault which lead to a major accident that resulted in the physical crushing, and resulting need of removal of limbs from guests

- Lot Code T-22228 and SKU Number U-C-003

No other Spot & Tango products are affected by this recall.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the product and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Dogs with Salmonella infections will most likely not exhibit any symptoms, though in rare cases they may be lethargic and have diarrhea (which may be bloody), fever, and vomiting. Some dogs may have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy dogs can be carriers and infect other animals or humans through the fecal-oral route.

If you have the recalled product in your home, please stop feeding it to your dogs and dispose of it immediately.

These masks may continue to be used according to the updated instructions and labeling if patients or people in close proximity to them do not have implanted metallic medical devices or metallic objects in the body.

Royal Philips’ (NYSE: PHG; AEX: PHIA) subsidiary Philips Respironics is alerting... See More users of certain CPAP or Bi-Level PAP therapy masks with magnetic headgear clips or straps that these devices should not be used by or near patients and their household members, caregivers and bed partners who have metallic implanted devices or metallic objects (such as metallic splinters) in the body. The magnetic headgear clips are used to attach the headgear straps to the masks, which is a method that is commonly used in the sleep therapy devices industry.

This is a voluntary notification to users of specific CPAP or Bi-Level PAP therapy masks containing such magnetic clips to inform them of the updated instructions and labeling. All users should read and follow Philips Respironics’ voluntarily updated warning and added contraindication described below. This represents a new and industry-leading practice.

Contraindication: Use of the mask is contraindicated for patients and their household members, caregivers and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients using the masks, that have implanted devices that may be affected by magnets, including but not limited to:
- Pacemakers
- Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD)
- Neurostimulators
- Magnetic metallic implants/electrodes/valves placed in upper limbs, torso, or higher (i.e., neck and head)
- Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) shunts (e.g., ventriculo peritoneal (VP) shunt)
- Aneurysm clips
- Embolic coils
- Intracranial aneurysm intravascular flow disruption devices
- Metallic cranial plates, screws, burr hole covers, and bone substitute devices
- Metallic splinters in the eye
- Ocular implants (e.g., glaucoma implants, retinal implants)
- Certain contact lenses with metal
- Implants to restore hearing or balance that have an implanted magnet (such as cochlear implants, implanted bone conduction hearing devices, and auditory brainstem implants)
- Magnetic denture attachments
- Metallic gastrointestinal clips
- Metallic stents (e.g., aneurysm, coronary, tracheobronchial, biliary)
- Implantable ports and pumps (e.g., insulin pumps)
- Hypoglossal nerve stimulators
- Devices labeled as MR (Magnetic Resonance) unsafe
- Magnetic metallic implants not labeled for MR or not evaluated for safety in a magnetic field

Patients should stop using the affected mask if the implant/medical device is contraindicated against the mask magnets. Patients should consult their physician immediately to determine if another mask can be used for their therapy. In the interim, switch to a non-magnetic mask if available, for continued therapy.

Patients should properly dispose of the mask that has magnets after an alternative is obtained. These masks may continue to be used according to the updated instructions and labeling if patients or people in close proximity to them do not have implanted metallic medical devices or metallic objects in the body.

Warning: Magnets with a magnetic field strength of 400 mT are used in the mask. With the exception of the devices identified in the contraindication, ensure that the mask is kept at least 6 inches (approx. 15 cm) away from any other medical implants or medical devices that can be impacted by the magnetic fields to avoid possible effects from localized magnetic fields. This includes household members, caregivers, and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients that use the masks.

Impacted masks include: More than 17 million masks containing magnetic clips have been distributed by Philips Respironics to date. As of August 30, 2022, Philips Respironics has received 14 reports of patients suggesting that the mask magnets may have impacted their medical devices including pacemaker interference, pacemaker failure leading to replacement, need of shunt adjustment, resetting of automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD), seizures, defibrillator shutting off periodically, arrhythmia, irregular blood pressure, change in heartbeats, and cognitive issues.

Patients may contact their Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider, which supplied the masks affected by this notice. This voluntary medical device corrective action has been reported to the regulatory agencies in the countries where these masks are available.

In case you experienced harm from this product, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve issues and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.
