6-year-old boy fell 40 feet from zipline after harness breaks
Since the incident, J Cesar Sauceda, said that the family is filing a lawsuit against the zipline’s ride operator, plus the park itself
It is reported that on Sunday (June 25), a Mexican family was at the Parque Foundation’s Amazonian Expedition when their 6-year-old boy named Cesar had his accident.
While on the zipline at the amusement park, which is located in the Mexican state of Nuevo León, the boy’s harness broke, causing him to fall 40 feet into an artificial pool located below the attraction.
A video of the incident was taken and shows the child riding the zipline before it comes to a stop in the middle of the attraction. The harness is then seen snapping, causing the child to fall into the water pit below.
Since the incident, J Cesar Sauceda, said that the family is filing a lawsuit against the zipline’s ride operator, plus the park itself. The family said they are blaming the tragedy on poor training of the park’s staff members, as they did not prepare the attraction correctly, nor properly handled the situation as it was happening, and the aftermath following.
