Dad sues in death of boy, 9, on carnival ride

One week after 9-year-old Dakota Stevenson died on a carnival ride in northwest Indiana, his father Friday filed a wrongful death suit against the ride's owners and operators, hoping to, as his lawyer put it, "discover the truth" about what happened.
The suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court accuses south suburban Midwest Midways of negligence at all levels, including staff "not reasonably qualified" to inspect, maintain and operate the ride safely. James Curtis Stevenson, Dakota's father, also accuses Midwest Midways' staff of not making sure all riders were "properly and adequately restrained" before starting the ride.
