REP. KRAUSE OFFERS STATEMENT ON DEATH AT SIX FLAGS OVER TEXAS  print page

ARLINGTON, TEXAS - Friday, July 19th, a death occurred on one of the roller coasters for Six Flags Over Texas. Six Flags and local authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident.
"I was terribly saddened to hear of the tragic events that took place at Six Flags last Friday evening," said Rep. Krause. "The main thing to remember right now is that a family is mourning the loss of a beloved mother, Rosy Esparza. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.

"From what I understand, Six Flags is fully cooperating with investigators and officials trying to determine the actual cause of the accident. To speculate as to the cause at this point is premature and not in the best interest of the family.

"Six Flags, and the roller coaster in question, were in full compliance with the Texas Department of Insurance at the time of the accident. I am confident Six Flags will take the steps necessary to ensure a tragedy like this does not occur again and stay in compliance with all standards relating to safety and security in their park.

"I encourage everyone to allow the family to have the proper time of mourning and to remember them in your prayers."
