The teen was transferred to an area hospital in stable condition with no serious injuries, the sheriff's office said.

The operator stopped the ride after learning a rider was in trouble. He was hurt as he attempted to catch the falling girl. "It wouldn't surprise me at all if they put additional safety restrictions on this ride, maybe safety belts". Howard was hospitalized with a minor back injury and later released from the hospital.

But both father and daughter said they weren't the true heroes - the young girl's brother, who was sitting next to her in the cable vehicle was.

Ms Winchell, who is applying to be a nurse, said they visited the girl on Sunday at the hospital and she was in good spirits.

Spiegel said the gondola isn't something a person could simply slip out of, but if a rider made a decision to circumvent safety regulations, it was possible.

The Best Group award went to the hip-hop trio, Migos , while Kendrick Lamar was named Best Male Hip-Hop Artist. Earlier in the evening, rapper Gucci Mane posted about wearing matching turquoise Gucci suits with the infant.

"I couldn't let that little girl die", Howard said.

Video of the incident shows the girl at Six Flags Great Escape Amusement Park barely holding on to the ride, as her younger brother sits next to her screaming hysterically for help.

"It's not something that you could just slip out of", Spiegel said. We were just in the right place in the right time.

Saturday evening a guest fell from a chair on the sky ride. He said he wouldn't be surprised if they didn't add safety belts or other safety restrictions on the ride in future.

The park said in a statement that the safety of guests is a top priority.

Dali's bones to be exhumed in Spain for paternity test
The suit was filed against Spain's tax office and public administration, both heirs of the painter, and the Dali Foundation. Spanish newspaper El País reported the exhumation - which could happen as early as July - can be appealed in court.

Six Flags has not yet offered a comment regarding this frightening incident.

According to police, the Sky Ride was functioning properly when the teenager and her brother climbed on it at around 8 p.m.

"Sheriff's investigators assisted by park personnel inspected the ride and the auto the victim was riding in and found that everything was in proper working order and all safety equipment was intact and operational at the time of the incident", the police document said.

Still, out of an abundance of caution, the ride will remain closed until a thorough internal review is completed, a rep for the park said.
