Six Flags Over Texas is looking into why a woman fell to her death while riding the Texas Giant. Sarah Dallof tells us Six Flags itself will conduct the investigation because there's no state or federal agency responsible for enforcing the safety of amusement parks.

The investigation continues into the death of a woman who fell while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas.

Witnesses say the woman was worried her safety restraint wasn't properly fastened before the ride left the loading zone.

Family members have now identified the victim as Rosy Esparza.

Witnesses report Esparza questioned the ride attendant about the security of her safety restraint and was panicked as the ride took off.

Six Flags has not commented directly on the restraint but said in a statement which reads in part

"it would be a disservice to the family to speculate regarding what transpired."

This new fatality will not be reviewed by government regulators since Texas is one of 21 states without oversight to investigate amusement park accidents.
