The family filed suit against park operators on Monday.“It killed me to watch it,” the boy's mother Kim Barnes told WFLA-TV, a Tampa NBC affiliate. “He didn’t deserve this.”
The boy has since been released from the hospital."His life is not the same anymore because of this,” said Barnes. “It’s affected him mentally, and emotionally and physically.”The company told WFLA in a statement that employees involved in the accident no longer work there and all remaining workers have been re-trained."Urban Air is fully committed to the uncompromising safety and well-being of our guests and employees," the company said. "We are thankful to hear that the child is back in school and we will continue to keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers through his full recovery."
Keep in mind what grandmoms always say. Children are not yours, they are only lent to you for a time. In those fleeting years, do your best to help them grow up to be good people.
