Riders or their parents or guardians are required to sign liability waivers in which they not only agree a ride can be risky but also that they accept any negligence by ride workers, The Post has reported. Colorado is one of the few states in which a parent or guardian is allowed to sign a waiver on behalf of a child.
I wonder how many accidents we have to experience that revolve around ride operators overriding a safety warning before parks start to take it seriously and only allow technical services to override such warnings.
It’s tragic, but I have to ask how the family didn’t realise the child wasn’t wearing a seatbelt? Like how did the parents put two separate seat belts on themselves without thinking to check on their 6 year old?
