Royal Caribbean Passenger Suing Company For $10 million

Business Insider:- A Royal Caribbean Cruises passenger is suing the company after he broke his pelvis on a trampoline, according to a lawsuit filed March 12.

The defendant, Casey Holladay, is seeking $10 million in damages, the Miami Herald reports.

He is accusing Royal Caribbean of negligence in installing the Sky Pad trampoline on its Mariner of the Seas ship despite the risks it posed to passengers, the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit says Holladay was using Sky Pad, a trampoline in which users strap in to a harness with bungee cords on each side, on the Mariner of the Seas on February 9. His harness snapped 20 feet above the ground, causing him to hit a hard surface next to the trampoline, the lawsuit alleges.

“I just felt the momentum release from my body that I wasn’t being held by anything anymore,” Holladay told NBC 6. “When I hit, all I really remember is the hit and the noise and the fear.”

The lawsuit claims that Holladay suffered a disability and permanent injuries as a result of the incident.

NBC 6 posted a video of the incident it said was filmed by Holladay’s girlfriend. The lawsuit says Royal Caribbean staff members tried to prevent passengers from filming the aftermath. In another video posted by NBC 6, a man who appears to be a Royal Caribbean employee places his hand in front of a camera filming the aftermath of Holladay’s fall and tells the camera’s operator that he is not allowed to film or take photos.

Royal Caribbean did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
