I seriously hope the boy who witnessed his brother being decapitated received therapy. This is beyond traumatic.

Poor baby. I hope he passed instantly & didn't feel pain. However those last seconds, I can't imagine.

"And he just kept saying, 'No trust me you don't want to go any further."
That's terrifying.

the saddest thing about this is that the little boy wasn’t even supposed to be on the ride, he didn’t weigh enough and that’s why he flew.

That poor child. The woman seated behind him, broke her jaw when Caleb's decapitated head hit her in the face.

I personally knew Caleb and I can tell you he was the sweetest and most positive uplifting person. We went to church together and he was so involved and just invested in life and god

The child was too light. Why let him on? The lifeguards should have known better.

Hope the other brother who witnessed the horrific accident is receiving therapy and dealing with the trauma. Such a sad incident

Caleb's raft was lifted up his head hit the netting and he was decapitated. That park should be sued along with the designers/engineers.

Back in the 70's my brother told me to never pay Companies to scare us. That was several decades ago.
