The parents of a Lafayette woman who fell to her death from a roller coaster are suing Dixie Landing amusement park in Baton Rouge.

George and Karen Zeno claim Dixie Landing failed to properly inspect and maintain the Xtreme roller coaster and failed to secure the locking mechanism necessary to hold Lindsay Zeno in her seat.

The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages.

The State Fire Marshal's Office is still awaiting a report and response from the roller coaster's manufacturer.
