[Ed. note: I'd like to briefly comment that I expect the family to be angry and upset about the death of a family member. I sincerely regret their loss. However, the opportunistic lawyer is the type of person who gives those who practice law a bad name. The investigation hasn't even been concluded, and already she's talking about legal action. What makes her intention so obvious is her statement that, "These rides are being built bigger, higher, faster and more dangerous." That's playing into the emotional hype over ride safety. People in the know realize that the ride in question is 23-years old, with 44 million rides. That's hardly "bigger, higher, faster and more dangerous." -Jeff]
