Suit Alleges Disney's Tower of Terror Caused Stroke, Heart Attack

In an interesting counterpoint to the suit I noted earlier this week seeking more rides on the Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror Ride at Walt Disney World (there the plaintiff contends that the ride is good for her health), a new suit was filed yesterday (more coverage here) alleging that the ride caused the teenage plaintiff's heart attack and stroke in 2005.  It alleges negligence in warnings and design.

(Update: Incidentally, on the claim that the ride is a common carrier, recall California's experience.)
