Pennsylvania residents may want to know about a personal injury case that is being pursued in Florida after a 10-year-old boy was injured while on an indoor zip line attraction. The amusement park designed it so that one person at a time rides on the zip line along a track that goes from one area to another. Videos show the boy flying through the air at the end of the track and falling 20 feet to the concrete below.
Despite an employer's best safety efforts, a work accident can occur on a job site. Companies in Pennsylvania and throughout the country may reduce the odds of an accident occurring by implementing a safety plan. This plan could include making sure that floors are dry or that ripped carpeting is removed as quickly as possible. Employees and customers should be warned about any hazardous conditions that could exist in a store or a parking garage.
Pennsylvania residents who have visited Las Vegas may be aware that a mansion once owned by the singer and entertainer Wayne Newton was briefly turned into a tourist attraction. Visitors to Casa de Shenandoah could tour the house, view Newton's extensive collection of luxury cars and take a look inside his private jet. They could also see a menagerie of animals ranging from horses and penguins to peacocks and monkeys.
While many people in Pennsylvania enjoy water activities as a way to escape the summer heat, pools and water parks can also come with dangers. Every day, around 10 people die due to accidental drowning across the United States, and two of them are children under the age of 15. It is the fifth-leading cause of unintentional injury or death nationwide and the most common cause of death from injury for children ages 1 through 4. This means that drowning takes a significant toll from American families, a worry that can be important to keep in mind while enjoying water-based activities.
