Attorney: Settlement reached in lawsuit over girl injured on Dells thrill ride

MILWAUKEE — The lawyer for a 12-year-old Florida girl who fell about 100-feet to the ground from an amusement park ride said today he's reached a settlement with the park.

Stuart Grossman said Friday a pre-lawsuit settlement has been reached with Extreme World in Wisconsin Dells but he couldn't release details, including when it was settled. The court still has to approve it.

He said they may still file a lawsuit against the German manufacturer of the ride, Montic.

The state Department of Commerce has said the operator at the top of the Terminal Velocity did not follow protocol when Teagan Marti fell July 30.

The report said Marti was dropped before the cage in which she was riding reached the top and before a net was in proper position.

A number listed for Extreme World rang unanswered.
