Ride Injuries?

Saturday, June 3, 2006 1:15 PM
Whether this information is valid or not, it is dangerous information to be putting out on amusement parks. Gives a false outlook. Is it possible that any of it is valid?

If anything, from what I have read, this organization is against federal regulation. At least I know it's not, Eddie Markey. ;)

It is possible, though very unlikely due to our sue-happy society.
Had there been that many accidents or injuries, we probibly would've heard something.

But who knows? A friend of mine is a nurse in an Er of a burb of Cleveland. Every so often, someone will go into the Er claiming backpain, neck aches and say it happened at GL or Cp. some of these people can get a bit huffy with the staff.
injured:'my neck hurts.'
nurse: 'sorry to hear that. Let's wait for the test results...'
injured:what are you gonna do to the park?
Nurse: Why? does the park need immediate medical treatment? I think you want a lawyer, not a nurse...
Most of those cases go nowhere.

Just ignore anything they say.

^^What he said. There may be some info on there worth checking out but it is completely over shadowed by the rest of the garbage featured.

Its all rather sad, or really laughable, depending on how you look at it.

Don't even dignify those idiots with attention. No one on that site is qualified in amusement ride safety in any way.
