Lawsuit Filed in Fatal Roller Coaster Accident

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The parents of a 21-year-old Lafayette
woman who fell to her death July 11 from a roller coaster at the
Dixie Landing amusement park in Baton Rouge have sued the park.
George and Karen Zeno claim Dixie Landing failed to properly
inspect and maintain the Xtreme roller coaster and failed to secure
the locking mechanism necessary to hold Lindsay Zeno in her seat.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in state district court in Baton
Rouge.
The park officials could not be reached for
comment.
The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages.
State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said Wednesday his office is
still awaiting a report and response from the roller coaster's
manufacturer.
