LAKE DELTON (WKOW) -- An attorney asked a court to block the release of any video of the ill-fated thrill ride of a Florida girl at Extreme World in Lake Delton.
WKOW27 News and other media organizations have invoked Wisconsin's Open Records law to inspect video of 12-year-old Teagan Marti's fall from the ride Terminal Velocity. Authorities said Marti crashed to the ground, as a landing net was not deployed. Ride operator Charles Carnell, 33, has been charged with felony reckless injury. Authorities said Carnell failed to follow safety protocols before releasing the girl to the free fall.
Lake Delton Police Chief Thomas Dorner said he was denying media requests to review the video at this time because Carnell's attorney has filed a motion with Sauk County Circuit Court to block any video release.
Police records show several Marti family members recorded portions of the girl's fall. Police investigators took possession of those video recordings.
