Father catches son after amusement park ride malfunctions

Delbert Latham, his wife, and his son, Kaysen, were visiting the Wonderland Amusement Park in Amarillo, Texas last Thursday, April 28 when Kaysen’s seat belt malfunctioned on the Mousetrap roller coaster.

In a video captured by the father, Delbert was shown holding onto Kaysen after his seat belt released during the ride, prompting Delbert to say, “I’ve got you. You’re fine.” Delbert Latham claimed that after the ride was finished and he and his son were both safely on the ground, he told the ride operator about the incident, causing the operator to apologize profusely but admit that the mishap had been “happening sometimes”. In a statement, Wonderland Amusement Park said that the ride did not originally have seat belts at all, but that the company took extra precautions by installing seat belts on the ride.

Texas found to have the second highest number of unfixed, recalled cars

Web-based vehicle history service provider Carfax, Inc. associate Chris Basso testified to the prevalence of automotive defects in the state of Texas, and the fact that this is the state wherein recalled vehicles do not easily get fixed.

Basso noted that one in every five cars on the road in Texas has an unfixed recall, making it the second state behind California to have the most incidences of cars having unfixed recalls in the country.

Debbie Love, the owner of a four-year-old Jeep with a problem, said that she did not get a letter from the automotive company regarding how to fix her vehicle, noting, “I would have thought they would have made more effort to get a hold of owners”.

GM defective ignition switch death toll reaches 57

The death toll from accidents resulting from General Motors Co.’s defective ignition switch vehicles has reached 57, the total of which increased by one since last week, the Associated Press reported. The last of claims eligible for compensation are being examined if they were postmarked by January 31, the deadline for the claims process.

Those who will agree to receive compensation from GM forfeit their right to sue the automotive company.

Federal investigators found that GM knew of the presence of faulty ignition switches on a number of their small vehicles, including Chevrolet Cobalts and others, for over 10 years before finally issuing a recall in 2014.

In 2014, GM allotted $400 million to make settlement payments but recently conceded that the amount could increase to $600 million. Feinberg noted that GM already paid $93 million in claims, GM’s annual report showed.
