Six Flags death: Woman who fell from Texas roller coaster, named!

Friday was horrible enough for the first time visitor of the theme park, Rosy Esparza. She fell while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.
At the time of the accident, Rosy's son was sitting beside her. Some say, her lap was not secured properly though investigators are yet to declare what really caused the tragic scene.

According to witnesses, the victim's son was screaming:
My mom, my mom -- we've got to get my mom... she's gone
Six Flags was deeply saddened by the accident. Spokesperson Sharon Parker issued the following statement to KTVT via email:
We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time.
Six Flags management also expressed its utmost desire to determine the real cause of the horrific incident.
We are committed to determining the cause of this tragic accident and will utilize every resource throughout this process. It would be a disservice to the family to speculate regarding what transpired. When we have new information to provide, we will do so. Our thoughts, prayers and full support remain with the family.
