This ride would never fly off if they never added the 2nd hill which I thought all the problems were coming from, all they needed to do was make it the worlds tallest for the awe factor then just make the one huge hill and make it level off until you slowed down.
The other two riders in the same raft suffered head injuries and their straps didn't come off. The kid that was killed was at the front, with the others behind him. So this all points to the raft going airborne and hitting into the netting/supports for the netting. The kid hit first and hardest, with the others more or less lightly hitting the same netting. Otherwise only the kid would have been hurt (If it was the straps fault).
