Very unfortunate. Likely caused by dangling his hand off the side of the boat.
"Please keep your hands, legs and head inside the vehicle and remain seated at all times"
This is what you tell a 5yo, not an adult.
he had to have been one of those fools who put his hand inside the water or tried to touch something he shouldn't of. idiot. I told people i know he must have been trying to touch the mermaids on the side of the boat right before the drop and smashed his finger between the track and the boat causing them to split. no matter what, he had to of touched something or had his hand outside of the boat.
I guess he forgot to keep his "ruddy hands inboard"
