How would a seat malfunction in a way that someone could get hurt like that?

I'm not familiar with this ride's harnesses so I can't really imagine it happening based on the many other rides I've experienced.

Best guess is it may have been a combo of a harness unexpectedly releasing and/or the guest not paying attention with their arm in the wrong place?

Pinch point perhaps?

This is such a bizarre incident. But then again, aren't most park incidents odd?
CoasterRadio did an employees stories episode a few weeks ago with some stories from across the industry of some pretty crazy incidents. They even have some from BGW.
