Nancy Marshall and Ashley Gilbert won a defense verdict from the trial court in a case arising out of an accident involving a seven-year-old boy who was playing with a rope on a merry-go-round with an open platform. The rope wrapped around the base of the merry-go-round, tangled with his foot, and dragged him underneath the merry-go-round where his foot was badly broken, requiring two operations. Plaintiff contended that the merry-go-round, which was more than 25 years old and had an open design not consistent with standards set forth in the 1990s, had caused the injury to the child. A biomechanical expert testified that the cause of the injury was the rope wrapping around the child’s ankle, which could have occurred with or without an open platform on the merry-go-round
