Fingertip Amputation On Amusement Ride
A child was injured on an amusement ride resulting in a partial degloving injury and fingertip amputation. The case was disputed by the ride operator who said that there was nothing dangerous about the ride. The injury occurred in a space where there was at least a 3/8″ gap between moving surfaces. That gap should have been no larger than 1/8″. December 2017.
