In hilarious-because-it-didn't-happen-to-me news, a 16-year-old Kentucky girl recently had her feet severed by a snapped cable while riding the "Superman Tower of Power." The ride lifts passengers 177 feet straight up, then drops 154 feet, according to the park's website. Although, now, it apparently drops 156 feet.
I can't believe they let her on the ride in the first place. There's a height requirement and she was 2 feet short.
