Not at Towers but I feel it's releavant. And I still to this day do not know HOW this was frickin possible. But last year on a trip to Florida with the family, we were doing Rock 'N' Roller Coaster at MGM (I refuse to call it Hollywood Studios) and my father and I boarded the train. Now both of us have claustrophobia, him moreso than I, and we had not ridden for a good few months prior. The train trundled off in all its Vekoma rattliness to the launch area. Engaged the launch dog, rolled back and waited. Steven Tyler screamed his bit, expecting a rush of g's and air, I braced my head against the restraint, but the train did not budge. It was pretty loud and rather dark in that bay and sure enough, Tyler screamed his bit again and this time it launched. Half way through the exit loop of the first element, bam, the lights came on. This was odd, I thought, they must have a problem. We stopped on the MCBR and it took me a moment to notice the empty seat beside me, complete with closed restraint. As I found out later, he panicked before the train launched after its delay and shuffled under the OTSR and asked a ride op for the exit. This poor guy was apparently dumbstruck, as you would be if a guy just got off an operating roller coaster. For you that do not know, the op is on the opposite side of the track to guest accessable areas, and my father got out on the ride ops side. Apparently that guy hit the E-Stop in an almost cartoonish rate. I was just weirded out, not 20 seconds ago there was 2 of us sat on a launch track and now there is just me on a brake run sat next to air. Anyway, we got led down the stairs and got a unique look at the track, quite interesting actually. Took about 20 minutes to walk out, but we got a free all day fastpass so it's all good! From what people saw, as his foot got out of the car it launched.
He has not been on any rides since.

THC selectively targets and destroys tumor cells while leaving healthy cells unscathed. Conventional chemotherapy drugs, by contrast, are highly toxic; they indiscriminately damage the brain and body.
