Va. Woman Sues Ocean City Amusement Park
BALTIMORE (AP) — A Virginia woman whose son was allegedly knocked down and dragged while on a ride at an Ocean City amusement park is suing the park for $1 million.
The Daily Record of Baltimore reports that Raffinee McNeill is seeking damages for an injury her son suffered while riding a children’s ride called the “Hampton I” at Trimper’s Amusements.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in Baltimore alleges that in 2012 McNeill’s son got out of his car when an operator stopped the ride to let another child off and was then knocked down and dragged when the ride started again.
McNeill says her son fractured his skull and has suffered lasting effects of the injury.
Trimper’s Amusements’ resident agent did not return a call from the paper.
