PITTSBURGH – A Greensburg woman injured at a water park alleges she was not warned of a hole she stepped in that caused her injuries.

Rita Perotti filed a complaint in 2017 in the Westmoreland County Court of Common Pleas against Idlewild Park, Idlewild Park Inc. and Festival Fun Parks LLC alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was at the defendants' water amusement park in Ligonier Township on August 2015. She alleges she was walking on a gravel walkway in one of the parking lots when her foot fell into a hole that was 8 to 10 inches in diameter that was used for the placement of a removable post. She alleges she tore a tendon in her right foot/ankle as a result.

The plaintiff alleges no signs were posted to warn of the hole.

The plaintiff is seeking damages of more than $30,000. The plaintiff is represented by Ned J. Nakles Jr. of Nakles and Nakles in Latrobe.

The case was removed to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania on Sept. 13.
