Updated: Updates on Six Flags Over Georgia

Couple of things:

The park is being required to enhance its signage and fencing around the ride; officials seemed to emphasize, however, that they considered the prior fencing and signage to be adequate. The new signs have to include the phrase "extreme danger." Update: To see the Department of Labor's press release, go here.

Also, the 911 call is available; the witness said that the boy "jumped the fence."

His cousin (who was with him) confirmed that, saying that they'd taken a break in the parking lot and jumped two fences to get back into the park.

Update 2: The police department's press release is here (scroll down).

Many lawyer web sites contain disclaimers. This is not legal advice. See your attorney. Etc.

This site does not. One presumes, top experts in torts see no protection from such disclaimers.

Where is the evidence that enhanced warning language has reduced law breaking, and resulting injuries? Where is the evidence enhanced language has reduced the risk of litigation after such accidents? Indeed, such warnings represent an admission of dangerousness. The stronger the language, the greater the implication of unreasonableness of danger.

It was proposed that razor wire go atop the outer fence, the inner fence get electrified, and that vicious dogs run between them, sort of Supermax prison standards of due care. Had the decapitee slashed himself, gotten bitten, and shocked, there would have still been the risk of litigation, for injuries from the injury prevention methods.
