The case settled with a payment for the limit of the insurance company covering the Air Glory company, according to court records, the policy had a limit of $1 million.
The girl fell 50 feet from a free-fall ride called the “Giant Swing” on the Lifest grounds at the Sunnyview Expo Center in Oshkosh. A subsequent investigation determined the fastener attaching the girl to the harness was not properly locked into place. A safety rope also was not properly attached to the harness.
The operator, Air Glory, was banned by the state from operating its rides in Wisconsin for one year as a result of the death.
