Amusement Ride Victim Foot Re-Attached

The family of a 13-year-old Louisville girl whose feet were severed on an amusement park ride, said doctors have been able to reattach her right foot.

On the other hand, Kaitlyn Lasitter’s family said in a statement on July 4, 2007, that the girl’s left foot was too severely damaged in the gruesome accident nearly two weeks ago to be saved.

Doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., said Kaitlyn is in stable condition and is progressing as expected.

The teen’s feet were severed just above the ankles as she rode the Superman Tower of Power thrill ride on June 21, at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville.

Investigators with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture will be looking into what happened for several more weeks.
