A jury recently returned a $20.64 million verdict to a man whose wife died of injuries suffered while using a Toyquest Banzai Falls In-Ground Pool Slide. The wife’s family sued Toys “R” Us, alleging that the slide was not properly designed and was not adequately tested. The woman slid head-first down this inflatable slide at a pool party. The slide deflated toward the bottom so that the wife struck her head on the pool deck before entering the water. She suffered multiple fractures of her vertebrae and was instantaneously rendered a quadriplegic, unable to breathe on her own. She died one day after being life-flighted to a hospital.
