Woman injured after being hit by flying object on roller coaster

JACKSON, NJ (WCMH) — A woman lost a tooth, broke two others and will now need extensive oral surgery after she was hit in the face by a flying object while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Sabreen Nassar tells CNN affiliate News 12 New Jersey that she was on the El Toro ride when she was hit with something that felt like a bat to the face.

She has no idea what hit her because it happened so fast, but she beleives it could have been a loose object coming out of another rider’s pockets.

Six Flags told the TV station they provided immediate medical attention to Nassar, but she claims otherwise.

“They just gave me paper towels for the blood and that was it,” Nassar said. “They kind of didn’t know what to do.”

News 12 New Jersey says another rider sued the theme park in 2014 after suffering an eye injury on the same ride. That ride was struck in the face by a flying cellphone.
