INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING INTO HOW A SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL DIED AT GLENWOOD CAVERNS ADVENTURE PARK... AND WHETHER OR NOT ANYONE IS AT FAULT. THE INCIDENT HAPPENED ON THE HAUNTED MINE DROP RIDE OVER THE WEEKEND.
WE'RE LOOKING AT THE ISSUE OF LIABILITY IN THESE SITUATIONS... WITH D-U LAW PROFESSOR THOMAS RUSSELL.
-- The death happened at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park on Sunday. The victim was on the Haunted Mine Drop ride.
--Guests are required to sign a liability waiver before getting on the ride. The waiver, posted on the park’s website, states that participants understand rides can pose the risk of injury or death. By signing, they agree to hold harmless the park and its affiliates for any and all liability.
--State regulations require annual inspections of amusement park rides as well as daily safety checks.
