Not if there was bad weight distribution on the raft if one side was significantly heavier then the other it could flip fairly easily.Washingtonian said:There is a ride just like this at Six Flags in Largo. I find it hard to believe the raft could just flip, there is too much weight with people on the raft to begin with as well as the raft weight itself.

The woman was seriously injured, with a broken collar bone, fractured shoulder, broken toe, and concussion, and has since received several staples in her head.
While it would not be fair for me to speculate on whether the victim and her husband were behaving properly on the ride, I should point out that the husband's story keeps changing and grows more and more suspicious. He claims to have talked to lifeguards about flipping the raft before the ride began, exaggerates the depth and size of the shallow splash pool at the end, and alleges that no lifeguards or medics came to his wife's aid - even though the park and several eye witnesses confirmed that lifeguards and medics responded immediately.
