A witness to the death of the woman who fell from a Texas roller coaster last week said she overheard the victim tell an employee before the ride departed that her lap bar might not be secure.

Rosy Esparza was riding the Texas Giant roller coaster with her son at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, when she apparently fell out of her seat at around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Carmen Brown said she witnessed the fall, adding that she heard Esparza express concern about whether she was properly secured before the ride began.

During the ride, Brown said, “She goes up like this [lifts her arms] and then when it [the roller coaster] drops to come down, that’s when it released and she just tumbled.”
