Crazy Video Woman Suffers Broken Foot, Back Injuries in 3-Story Zip Line Fall
Harrowing video captures an Alabama woman's three-story fall off a zip line.
On New Year's Eve, Tabitha Baker was ringing in 2015 at Holiday Spectacular Park, a seasonal attraction near Dothan, Alabama.
Video shows Baker receiving encouragement from observers to zip line off the nearly 30-foot-high platform.
A few minutes later, she jumps off and almost immediately plummets to the ground, as onlookers scream and gasp.
Doctors say Baker suffered a broken foot, a crushed heel and some back injuries, and it could be several months before she could walk again. But they also say it could have been much worse.
Baker said the harness didn’t feel right and believes it broke. In fact, she claims to have expressed concern to a park employee who assured her it was functioning properly.
However, Holiday Spectacular owner Maxine Chappell disagrees and said safety measures are always in place. A witness, Stephen Cook, said it appeared to him the harness was functioning correctly.
Signs at the zip line attraction states that a waiver must be signed beforehand and, by riding, the person gives up their right to file a lawsuit.
