QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - A 14-year-old girl from Greenwood, Delaware who survived falling off a New York amusement park ride has been released from a hospital.
    
Officials said the teen was released Monday from Albany Medical Center, where she was treated for unspecified injuries after falling into the arms of bystanders gathered about 25 feet below the Sky Ride at Six Flags Great Escape.
    
Police said the girl's actions caused her to slip beneath the restraining bars while riding in the two-person gondola with her brother Saturday night. She dangled briefly before dropping onto several people clustered on the pavement below.
    
Police said the ride was functioning properly at the time.
    
The park said the ride remains closed as it conducts an internal investigation.
    
The police investigation into the exact circumstances surrounding the fall is continuing.
