Questions remain about woman's deadly fall at Six Flags

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON -

There are more questions and still very few answers about the investigation into a Dallas woman's deadly fall from the Texas Giant at Six Flags.  The ride remained closed over the weekend.  It's becoming increasingly clear that if and when we do get information about what happened, it will only come from the park itself.

On Saturday, family members confirmed that Rosy Esparza was the victim in Friday evening's horrific accident, thrown to her death from the Texas Giant roller coaster.  They say it was the first time she'd ever visited the amusement park.  Arlington police and fire assisted in the initial investigation, but because it was an accident they do not plan to conduct a lengthy probe. They're now referring all questions to Six Flags.

Six Flags released a statement Saturday, indicating it is determined to find what caused the accident.  Esparza's family members told Fox 4 they are looking in to hiring an attorney.

In 1999, a 28 year old woman died at Six Flags when a raft overturned on the Roaring Rapids ride.  The park paid a $4 million settlement in a lawsuit filed by her family.
