Family Files Lawsuit Against Amusement Park

The parents of a carnival worker electrocuted at the Gregg County fair are suing the company that provides the rides.

Back in September, 20 year old Timothy Swickard of Staples, Texas died while working on a ferris wheel. The lawsuit alleges the company did not provide proper training to Swickard in operating the ferris wheel or provide him with the proper equipment to safely do his job.

Swickard's parents are asking compensation up to $2 million for injuries and damages.
