Army amputee thrown from NY roller coaster, dies Note: this may not be PRSI-worthy, but I could see it becoming such a discussion. I'm kind of curious what posters on this board think about this, as I've seen a wide range of opinions on various topics. There will obviously be some who blame the park 100%, and some who blame the rider 100%. I blame the rider more than anything. He should have known that going on such a ride was not a wise idea since he was missing the part of the body that holds you into the coaster! The park should not have let him on the ride, but if he had his prosthetic legs on (the article is not clear if he had them or not) and had pants on over them, then they may well have not known he even had prosthetic legs. But I could also see that if the park denied him going on the coaster, that there would be some backlash along the lines of discrimination against people with disabilities.
