ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -

A police report shows workers operating a Six Flags Over Texas roller coaster from which a woman fell to her death in July recall glitches with the safety features on the cars.

Rosa Ayala-Goana died when she was ejected from the Texas Giant roller coaster July 19.

Arlington Police Department reports showed one employee recalled the safety restraint on the car from which the Dallas woman fell 75 feet to the ground was "a little high, or not as tight as it should be." The Dallas Morning News reports the worker checked a safety light, determined the lap bar was secure on the woman and allowed the coaster train to leave.
    
Another reported the train had problems in the days previous, including "a trouble light" the week before.
