Family Attractions Amusement LLC blames one of the children injured on their Ferris wheel for the gondola overturning, according to responses to three lawsuits filed following the August 2016 incident at the Greene County Fair.

In the responses, the company denies responsibility in the incident and places blame on a minor child who was in the gondola when it overturned. Any further liability, they state, “is barred or reduced by the comparative fault” of the manufacturer.

The responses claim the minor child, who a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission identified as having “a severe but unspecified learning disability,” stood and rocked the gondola, therefore allegedly negligently causing the incident.
