The video was posted by Facebook user Loren Lent, who thanked the people who caught the girl, as well as a man who climbed a nearby tree to move the branches that were in her way.

Many onlookers shouted in worry as it looked like she could fall to the ground.

Mr Howard and his 21-year-old daughter, Leeann Winchell, positioned themselves under the girl as the ride stopped and security came running. Her little brother was shaken but uninjured, she said.

As of now, we don't know why this girl was hanging so precariously from Sky Ride.

It gave people time to gather beneath her. After receiving a call that a rider was in distress, park staff stopped the ride, police said.

"Along the ride they should have something stationed whether its ladders or some means to perform a rescue", Lent said.

As she fell screams could be heard from the crowds gathered to watch the drama unfold.

Witnesses said she was lifted up and carried to a golf cart where emergency workers arrived to help her. Thankfully, her injuries are minor, and as of Sunday morning she is in stable condition.

A teenage girl survived a dramatic fall from a ride at a U.S. theme park after men heroically caught her.

The Warren County Sheriff's office said they inspected the ride with park personnel and found that everything was working correctly.

Saturday evening a guest fell from a chair on the sky ride.

He saw the girl - a resident of Greenwood, Delaware, who has not been identified - clinging to the ride and to a younger relative also in the auto.

Winchell, who is applying to be a nurse, said she and her father visited the girl on Sunday at the hospital and she was in good spirits.

Six Flags released a statement saying that New York State's Department of Labor has cleared the ride for operation, but that no one can use it until an internal review of the incident has occurred.

We are continuing our investigation and our thoughts and prayers are with the guest and her family.
