Legal issues continue over Texas Giant death

Legal issues continue unfortunately over at Six Flags Over Texas as the lawsuit continues for the death of the 52 year old woman who had fell to her death while riding the New Texas Giant.

dropRosa Esparza fell to her death after her lap restriant failed to keep her in her train over the first drop of the coaster in July 2013. Her family is suing Six Flags and the Manufacturer, Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, for $1 million dollars.

A deposition has just been released showing that a Gerstlauer Amusement Rides Executive has said the park was negligent because the ride attendant did not check the lap bar restraint an the operator failed to stop the ride.

“She gave statements shortly after Ms. Esparza’s death that she thought the lap bar was a little too high and not in what she thought was the proper position and yet she did not stop the train and that was her responsibility.”
