Size to blame in Texas roller coaster death?

At a Six Flags in Texas on Friday, 52-year-old Rosy Esparza slipped out of her seat on the fourteen-story roller coaster while it was in motion and fell to her death.

The park says it is still investigating the cause of the accident, but some are saying the passenger's weight may have played a role.

    There is a point where you're literally standing up due to the downward angle. It's a rough coaster ride.

    This was my first thought--was she too fat to fit in the seat for the bar to engage properly?
