Wink Lawsuit: Man Claims Tower of Terror Caused Stroke

This was on the local (Orlando) news tonight. Hmmm...his stroke occured 23 days after he rode the TOT in 1998?

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It's called the Tower of Terror, but one man says the real terror happened after he rode it. He says the ride caused him to have a stroke and now he's suing Disney.

It is extremely rare for a personal injury case over a theme park ride to go to trial and most are settled or dismissed. Marvin Cohen’s incident happened in 1998. It has taken until this week to go to trial.

Cohen said the ride itself is flawed. The man's attorneys argue the ride is dangerous and Disney failed to warn riders of the safety risks.

“Do you have any comment about the case?” WFTV reporter Mary Nguyen asked Cohen.

“No, I cannot comment,” Cohen replied.

Marvin Cohen, 80, would not talk to WFTV about his case against Disney, because his attorney and Disney agreed not to talk to the media about the case until after the trial.

“I'll talk with you after the case is over,” Cohen's attorney said.

Cohen's attorney said his client was physically active when he first rode the Tower of Terror in 1998, but 23 days after he rode it he had a stroke.
