A woman died Friday night while riding The Texas Giant, a roller coaster at Six Flags over Texas in Arlington.
The incident happened just after 6:30 Friday evening.
Right now, it's unclear how the woman died, but Six Flags spokeswoman Sharon Parker released this statement:
We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time.
The woman's name has not yet been released.
One person on Twitter Friday night claimed to have seen someone "fly off of the Texas giant two seats in front of me."
