Amusement Park Accidents
Every year, thousands of people are injured and several are killed at amusement parks.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission estimated that in 2004 as many as 3,500 people were injured seriously enough to require emergency care because of amusement park accidents. Between 1997 and 2002, the CPSC found an average of 4.4 people died each year in non-work related accidents at amusement parks, theme parks, fairs and carnivals in the U.S.
