superman: ride of steel

A man died today falling from this roller coaster at Darien Lake, which is an amusement park near where I live. I’ve been there many times, I’m actually going there on Tuesday for Warped Tour, and this is really sad and scary. This isn’t the first time they’ve had an incident on this roller coaster either.

edit: The man’s name was Sgt. James Hackemer. He was an Iraq war veteran who had both his legs amputated after a road side bombing. He was at Darien Lake with his sister and kids. This story is so sad, please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
