Middle School Student Falls 25 feet from Zip Line at Grand Targhee Resort
Mel C. Orchard of The Spence Law Firm, LLC, on behalf of an Afton couple, has filed a civil lawsuit against Grand Targhee Resort and Action Integrated Management after their son was improperly secured to a zip line before he fell 25 feet to the ground. The young boy was one of 17 middle school students attending a summer program at Grand Targhee Resort in 2008.
According to the complaint, the employee who took the reservation neglected to properly record it or to notify Action Integrated Management that there was a group intending to use the course. As a result, when the group arrived there were not enough people to operate the course. A resort employee improperly pressured an Action Integrated Management staff member to allow an untrained resort employee to work the zip line. The untrained resort employee failed to “properly and safely” secure the boy, and he fell to the ground suffering severe injuries.
