And by "physician" they mean male gynecologist (lol). The fact that the news continues to refer to him as a physician gives people the wrong impression that he might be an expert on spinal injuries. He is not. He's a male gynecologist.

My coworker was asking me if I heard about the back doctor that got hurt at Six Flags since they knew I was going off to ride roller coasters again this weekend. Just goes to show how it's being misreported.

I think its also worth noting that any height requirement, both min. and max. are with shoes included. Which if theyre typical tennis shoes can add at least an inch up to an inch and a half. That still wouldnt make him 77 inches (6' 5") , but closer to it...

With that having said im 6' 4" with shoes on and have not, in any form, experienced "crushing iniuries" from this ride :lol:

In short, sounds like all that happened is he got stapled. And when you fly at 128 mph . Of course its going to tighten. Now whether or not this was actually responsible for the "cascade of medical catastrophe" following, I am not one to say, but it sounds as if a preexisting condition might be a factor

Misreported or misread/misremembered?

I saw that come up on my Google News, because Google knows me in a scary way. The intersection of theme parks and people being stupid is kinda my jam.

Yeah, I mean I don't know that the ride didn't cause the back problems, but I am as much of an expert on back injuries as this guy is. I'd say the probability is that this falls under the warning not to ride if you have back problems.

Is the park still doing their loose article crackdown on El Toro and Joker? Headed down today and need to know whether to bring some singles for a lo___cker. Thanks!

They were on opening day. Also Kingda Ka and Zumanjaro have the same policy.

^ does their loose article policy allow for items in zippered pockets or is it a no tolerance nothing allowed policy like Steel Vengeance was?

^ It's a no tolerance policy. They have an employee at the entrance who asks if your pockets are empty, so it's done on the honor system. And without fail I always see someone angrily kicked out of line for trying to get around it.
