The 14-year-old was taking part in a "Sky Ride" gondola attraction at Six Flags Amusement Park in upstate NY. "Go ahead", a man yells as the girl falls and bystanders applaud the crowd who caught her. It was then that the girl plummeted to the ground, hitting a tree branch before being caught by several people below.
The girl, from Greenwood, Delaware, was on the Sky Ride, a slow gondola-style attraction.
Police and emergency medical services were sent to the park at 8:05 p.m. It's not clear how the victim, a 14-year-old visitor from DE, slipped free, but local police confirmed that she's now at the nearby Albany Medical Center, in stable condition and with no serious injuries.

The unnamed girl was rushed to the hospital but did not sustain any serious injuries, officials told the Associated Press.
