A 31-year-old mechanic suffered cuts to his arm while working on the Tatsu coaster ride at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park in Valencia, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. No one else was hurt, and the ride reportedly was shut down for a while.

The injured man was initially treated at a first-aid station in the park and then was taken to the nearby Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for further treatment, said Ray Dong, a Fire Department dispatcher. Dong said he did not know the cause of the accident.

 Six Flags Magic Mountain did not return phone calls requesting information about the incident.
