The latest CPSC report on Amusement Ride-Related Injuries and Deaths did not make big news this year

The latest CPSC report on Amusement Ride-Related Injuries and Deaths did not make big news this year. One of the reasons is that when the report was released, CPSC did not even issue a news release. Another is that in 2001, a hospital that previously had reported to NEISS, CPSC’s injury reporting arm, left the system. Since it is located close to a fixed-site amusement park, it had accounted for a large share of fixed-site injury reports. With that hospital out of the system, there has been a drop in the estimated number of amusement park ride injuries.
