Settlement reached after Wis. amusement ride mishap

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The lawyer for a 12-year-old Florida girl who fell about 100 feet to the ground from a Wisconsin amusement park ride says he's reached a settlement with the park.

Stuart Grossman said a pre-lawsuit settlement has been reached with Extreme World in Wisconsin Dells but he couldn't release details. The court must approve it.

He says they still may file a lawsuit against the German manufacturer of the ride, Montic.

The state Department of Commerce has said the operator of the Terminal Velocity ride didn't follow protocol when Teagan Marti fell July 30.  The report says Marti was dropped before the cage in which she was riding reached the top, and before a net was in proper position.  She remains hospitalized.
