Amusement ride operators reading their phones, ignoring kids
Ride operators from four different Texas amusement companies were using their cell phones at four different festivals. KVUE.com reports.
... In one case, an employee at the top of a giant slide was caught on camera using his cell phone as he helped kids prepare to slide down.
In another, the operator of a train ride designed for young children was seen staring at his phone as cars full of kids rolled past him.
Ride managers said workers should know better. Each company we talked with said operators are banned from using phones while running the rides.
