Posted | Contributed by Jeff

The family of a 4-year-old Pennsylvania boy who died after riding Epcot’s “Mission: Space” has filed a wrongful death suit against Walt Disney World. The family of Daudi Bamuwamye filed suit Tuesday in Orange County Circuit Court seeking unspecified damages. The suit, filed on the anniversary of the boy’s death, alleges Disney did not properly warn the public of hazards associated with the ride, should not have allowed such a small boy on the ride and should have done more to help after Bamuwamye became unconscious after riding, according to a report in the Orlando Sentinel. Disney stands by its ride and says the medical examiner found a pre-existing condition.
