Not a lot of people understand but a teenager named Nicky was actually responsible for the death of Eddie, not the falling amusement ride. When he went on that ride, his car keys fell out and went into the operating system. Overtime the key was cutting the cord and it eventually got to the point where it couldn't support the ride by itself. This made the ride fall and Eddie jump to pull the little girl out of the way and saved her life. If there was a different turn of events, the machine would have never failed and it wouldn't have come so close to killing the little girl and making Eddie save her for the cost of his own life. I feel that this story needs a new ending even though to do that, you need to change most of the plot because everything reflects on the beginning of the story.
