Court allows amusement park death lawsuit to move forward

The Iowa Supreme Court made the ruling Friday.

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that the wife of a man killed in an accident at an amusement park in 2016 can proceed with a federal lawsuit and that the park’s insurance company may have to pay damages. 

The court ruled Friday that the insurance company for Adventureland Park in Altoona must provide a defense for the operator of a water ride. 

The lawsuit accuses Adventureland employee Stuart Glen of negligence that led to the death of his co-worker Stephen Booher. Gladys Booher, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is seeking damages including loss of earnings, physical and mental pain and suffering, burial expenses and punitive damages.
