There is a final report just out on the accident that claimed the life of a seven-year old boy at Rye Playland three months ago. While the report points out several deficiencies at the park, it also says none contributed to the boy's death.

"The family is now certain that litigation is required to retain the truth in this horrible tragedy"
I'm very sorry that they lost their son and I would be devastated as well if I were in their shoes. While the park has some things to correct itself on I honestly think the family is looking for some sort of compensation on their loss that stated in the report the park wasn't responsible for.
Again, I'm pulling my hair out because this should be a done deal since the investigation is complete. Now the family will be seeking a lawsuit because the final report didn't come back saying what they wanted to hear: it was the park's fault.
So what would be adequate supervision on a ride like this anyway? Floodlights? An employee in every boat for the parents who'd rather catch a smoke while Junior rides? Security cameras throughout the ride? Why not security cameras all over the park-- every park?
Too bad I'm not around for that press conference, I'd ask her some good questions.
