Posted | Contributed by Jeff

The family of a 16-year old girl who was critically injured when she was hurled off an amusement park ride has filed a negligence lawsuit against the owners and operators of the Miami-Dade County Fair and the Gravitron ride. Last Friday, as the cylindrical Gravitron was spinning with about 45 people inside, a bolt broke and an outer panel flew off, throwing seven off the ride, state ride inspection officials said. The suit names Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, Inc., Conklin Shows, Inc. and ITRS, Inc., as defendants.
