Eureka, MO – Six Flags St. Louis has shut down its Superman Tower of Power ride as a safety precaution after a girl was injured on the same ride in Kentucky.

A 13-year-old girl's feet were cut off while on the thrill ride Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Thursday in Louisville.

The ride lifts passengers 177 feet straight up, then drops them at high speeds.

The ride has been shut down while park officials investigate what caused the Kentucky accident. The rest of the St. Louis park remains open.
