Thrillgeek has learned that the family of the victim that was thrown from the Texas Giant has come forward and released her name, Rosy Esparza.
Official statement from Six Flags:
We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time.
Reports on Twitter are suggesting she was thrown off of the ride after her restraint became loose.
