GALVESTON — A Fort Bend County man is suing a Kemah amusement park, alleging he was injured when he fell while trying to save his children from being hit by a miniature train.
Danish Ahmad filed a complaint June 6 in Galveston County District Court against John Doe and Landry's G.P. Inc., and Landry's Seafood Kemah Inc., alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Ahmad and his children were at Kemah Boardwalk, 215 Kipp Ave., Kemah, on July 7, 2018. Ahmad said he noticed his children playing near the railroad tracks and ran toward them to prevent their being hit by the C.P. Huntington miniature train. The suit alleges John Doe, who was operating the train, failed to stop the train in sufficient time and struck Ahmad, causing him to fall and sustain severe personal injuries, pain and mental anguish, leading to medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide barriers between the train and the public and that John Doe failed to maintain a proper lookout or maintain a safe speed for the train.
Ahmad seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million, interest, trial by jury, actual, compensatory and punitive damages and all other just relief. He is represented by attorneys Richard J. Plezia and Alice Lima Lovchik of Pichard J. Plezia & Associates in Houston.
