Yet again, my odd interest in amusement park safety compels a post on a death on the Mission: Space ride at Epcot. This is the second death in about a year on the ride (low absolute rate, high profile, high for the industry). I've posted about it at my other blog, MassTort.org.
Given the evident fact that the ride did not malfunction in either case, and the likely fact that both decedents had preexisting conditions related to their death, the incidents raise interesting questions about design and warnings, as I discuss over there.
