Authorities say a 14-year-old DE girl's actions caused her to fall from a NY amusement park ride and land in the arms of bystanders. She was first treated by emergency staff at the park, then taken to a local hospital.
The teenager was left dangling about 25ft off the ground as her eight-year-old brother cried hysterically saying he couldn't hold on to her.
The operator stopped the ride and a group of guests and employees gathered beneath the ride auto to catch the girl, who dropped into their arms.

"I couldn't let that little girl die", he told the AP.
"I didn't care if I got hurt, this young girl has a whole life to live ahead of her", said Winchell, who lives in Colonie. He said of the rescue effort: "It was just good to see people band together to do what they could do".
"It's not something that you could just slip out of", Spiegel said.
