Hard to believe its been thirty years since the Sky Way accident at SFSTL today. I was five years old when it happened and remember watching the rescue on TV. I think my late grandpa heard about it on his police scanner as we were visiting them when the accident occured.

I am sort of curious to know how that Sky Way accident was like, since it looked like a pretty big one that a lot of guests on each gondola must have been scared when dangling, I guess.

Still one of the saddest thing ever at SFSTL.
