The Senate's Investigations and Labor committees were prompted by four deaths at New York amusement parks last year. Elayne Cassara of Norwalk, Connecticut, whose seven-year-old son, Jon-Kely, died last August at the Playland amusement park in Rye, testified.
Jon-Kely was on a ride called "Ye Olde Mill," in which boats move gently through the dark through scenes populated by trolls and gnomes. Investigations concluded that Jon-Kely climbed out of his boat for some reason and then fell, dying instantly from blunt head trauma.
