On Sunday 5th August 2012 the monorail at Alton Towers was E-Stopped to stop a major accident. Now all of this is unconfirmed by the resort but there are many people on the resorts Facebook page talking about it plus a few photos here and there! From what we can gather the ride was going along towards the hotel when the switch track was misaligned which would cause the train to de-rail causing un think able problems and possible deaths for the people in the ride cars. People had to be given oxygen and gas to relieve the pain from any injuries that may have been caused to them such as one person has been confirmed to have bitten through there bottom lip.
