Nine thrill rides around the country were shut down Friday after a 13-year-old girl's feet were severed off at an amusement park in Louisville, Ky.

A Six Flags spokeswoman said the company has shut down rides similar to Louisville's Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom's Superman Tower of Power at parks in St. Louis, Gurnee, Illinois, and near Washington, D.C., as a safety precaution.

Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. also shut down and inspected drop tower rides at Kings Island near Cincinnati; Canada's Wonderland, in Toronto; Kings Dominion in Doswell, Va.; Carowinds, in Charlotte, N.C.; and Great America in Santa Clara, Calif., company spokeswoman Stacy Frole said.

State officials were investigating how the 13-year-old girl's feet were severed.

Witnesses saw a cable snap before hearing screams of terror.

"I seen the car go up. Then, like, the cable broke, I heard pwchh and I heard a lot of people screaming," Chris Stinette, who was on the ride when the accident occurred, told FOX 41.

Investigators returned to the park Friday to examine the ride, said Bill Clary, a spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

The Agriculture Department is responsible for inspecting amusement park rides in Kentucky. "We don't know the cause and we may never know the cause, honestly," Clary said.

Part of a broke cable was visible on the ride, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Asked about the cable, McLean told the paper, "it would be speculation" to say how the ride malfunctioned or whether the cable contributed to the accident.

The girl, whose name was not released because she's a minor, was initially treated at University Hospital and her condition was unknown, according to park spokeswoman Carolyn McLean. Her condition was unavailable Friday morning.

The ride lifts passengers 177 feet straight up, then drops 154 feet, reaching a speed of 54 mph according to the park's Web site.

The ride has been shut down indefinitely while park and state officials investigate what caused the accident. The rest of the park remained open.

The ride opened in 1995 and was originally called the "Hellevator," the Courier-Journal reported.

Well I am not as aged as some of you, But even in my generation I also miss Jimmy Johns. Not only was it right down the road but every time we would when a base ball game we would go for Ice cream...  I also miss the older labor day parade.. When it was up town and not so much at the park... I see more political campaigning then I do anything anymore. and the cost of the games.... It is hard to spend a night of family fun... I heard the carnival at St. Robert was awful some friends told me they took there two kids and spent $50 withing minutes and the girls didn't get to ride all the rides...  That's hard to do on a tight budget.. I know my family spent alot of time together, More than other my age did anyway... We always went to Silver Dollar City, Or fishin, Big Surf. I think we spent most of our time in branson. I remember this great big Water slide Boy was it a blast... And Hearing all of you talk about drive in movies I wish there was still some around here, I think there is one nearbye.
With the cost of things these days I sometimes understand how it is hard to do things.

One of our neighbors had a Big problem with stray cats around her house. She called me up. and after several days of chasing these cats, I traped four of them, and the pay was well worth my time...
