The parents of a seven-year-old boy, who died on an amusement park ride in New York State, have settled their lawsuit against Westchester County, for $1.25 million. The county also agreed to set up a scholarship in the child’s name. Westchester County, which owns the amusement park, was said to have been negligent, causing the child’s death in 2005. The boy was on Playland’s Ye Old Mill, an indoor boat ride. He got out of his boat soon after the ride started and somehow ended up in its channel of water, dead from a blunt head injury. Officials acknowledged that the ride was understaffed.
