DALLAS/FORT WORTH, TX (KCEN) - A Fort Worth woman is the victim of a bizarre weekend accident at Six Flags Over Texas.

Brandon Green and his mother Rosemary were at the park, when a basketball he had just received as a prize suddenly popped while Rosemary was carrying it.

Moments after that, Brandon started rolling with his cell phone to document what happened.

It wasn't long before mom was rushed off to the emergency room.

She will recover, but the family worries about just how many other families may have picked up basketballs that are ready to pop.

Six Flags said in a statement quote, "We take every incident very seriously. We did an assessment of the other basketballs. This was isolated."

The park refunded the family's tickets for the day.
