    Harness clearly not attached. The employee walked around the area but didn't verify it was attached. Like when a flight attendant walks through the aisle and makes sure overhead bins are securely closed, that didn't happen here.

    He was a football lineman. Show me a football team that the linemen look like basketball power forwards.

    He was 6'5 340 at 14 years old. That's bigger than most offensive lineman in the SEC. Kid was way too big for that age.

    Yeah the kid was too big and the ride operator didn't do him any favors for sure, but the ride itself should not have allowed any movement. Each position on that ride needs sensors and fail safe equipment that ensures that even someone who is passed out will not be ejected. If the harness can't be lowered enough, the fault code stops everything from progressing. The operator who is making all of $15 an hour can't be the last line for safety.

    Look, he's probably 6-3" + and 325 pounds with a 50" waist....the ride simply isn't designed with that customer in mind.

    There is no such thing as 'one size fits all' when it comes to safety & health. He simply shouldn't have been allowed to ride....his size being a societal outlier.
    It wasn't his size. The safety bar was not secure. It was not pulled down enough, neither was the seat belt attached at the bottom. You can easily see a LOT of space between his shoulders and also near his groin. That safety bar has ratchets on it that only secure once you push it down a bit further than in the pictures. If you don't push it all the way down it won't ratchet and is totally free and then you are in a world of hurt. No one can hold themselves in that seat with the amount of force you're about to get. Those seats probably can hold someone 500 pounds. the bigger you are the less room for movement which would make it impossible to fall out. But that safety arm was not secure. Game over. That's a shame because all it took was for the attendant to push on the bar and ensure the seat belt was fastened at the bottom before the ride took off. The kid should have shook the arm bar to make sure it was locked before the ride began and should have screamed to high hell if it wasn't. Very sad and I can't imagine being his father right now.

    Or racist. Black kid not allowed on ride because he was fat or black. Could go either way? Amusement park then gets a lawsuit for discrimination.

    It's always Trumps fault with you snowflake sissy liberals, right? Biden is the best President in US history by far!

    We all love massive inflation, high gas prices and WW3 potential!

    Its a given that personal injury lawyers would be circling like sharks.

    What I donít understand is hiring Civil Rights lawyer Ben Crump as well.

    If you are black and fat you should die if a cop steps on your neck for 2 hrs or ride a thrill ride.

    Nothing is wrong with me, just America is becoming fat and I'm trying to point that out. Nothing good comes out of becoming obese. This kid was well over 300 pounds at age 14!

    That's a problem and shit happened.

    He exceeded the weight limit, the harness could not fit him.

    Just like the normal posters on SBR suggested.

    That's exactly what I posted. Kid was too damn fat!! Couldn't get the harness locked in because of his massive fat mid section.

    Ride handlers dropped the ball. End of story.

    ~~~
    Can't imagine the father's grief in this situation.
    The above safety features have to be in place on the rides as they become more and more extreme.

    Sounds like a great kid was lost for no good reason.
    I understand that he was an excellent student, an all-around good person, and an excellent football player.

    Inexcusable fails on the ride cannot be overlooked.
