The mother of a 10-year-old boy who suffered serious injuries after falling from a zip line in September has filed a lawsuit.

Kimberly Barnes, of Lakeland, Florida, is suing Urban Air Adventure Park, also in Lakeland.

The suit filed on Monday claims employees failed to check or secure the boy’s harness at safety checkpoints before he went on the ride.

"He went to go have fun that day," Barnes said. "He was with his friend to celebrate his friend’s birthday, and maybe literally an hour, hour and a half, after they were open, I got a phone call that he had fallen from a harness."

"He was going to be airlifted because it was a trauma situation at that point, and that’s when I lost it," she added.
