It is rare to justice done I am glad it was found in this case.

You pull more G's when braking hard in a car than on some of these rides.Did they really think a jury in Orange County Florida was going to find a direct link to this mans injury.That was a leap that can't be proven .It could have been caused by this ride but it is imposible to prove that it did Did he fly to Orlando ? The presure in the airplane could have caused this also.

I am an slightly overweight middle age man with high blood presure. I am aware of the signs on most of these rides that exclude me from riding .I choose to ride knowing the risk.
