WOODBRIDGE – A township teen who was injured two years ago at a Wildwood amusement park has filed suit, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
Gia Mastroserio was 13 when part of a steel pole broke off of the Sea Dragon ride at Morey’s Piers and struck her in 2011, the suit contends. She alleges that she suffered “severe and sustained injuries” that have left her unable “to enjoy the normal activities and pleasures of life,” according to the report.
The amusement park would not comment on the pending litigation, but an executive at the maker of the ride – which is not named in the lawsuit – is skeptical of the girl’s injury claims, the newspaper said. Jeff Roth, vice president for operations at Chance Rides, pointed to Mastroserio’s Twitter account, which included mention of a recent sleepover and plans to try out for the high school volleyball team.
