Man Says He Was Blinded on Harry Potter Ride

Carlos Montalvo rode the Dragon Challenge at Universal's Islands of Adventure on Sunday and says he has permanently lost vision in his right eye. Montalvo said something hit him in the face as the coaster moved along, and he was in pain and bloodied. Universal said it is doing everything it can to assist the Montalvos.

"We spent hours after the incident thoroughly inspecting and re-inspecting the ride, the ride vehicles, the tracks and the area underneath the tracks. We found absolutely nothing that could have contributed to this incident," said Universal spokesman Tom Schroder.
The dual coasters were re-opened Monday afternoon. Montalvo’s attorney, Clay Mitchell of Morgan and Morgan, will be speaking with Montalvo Wednesday. Montalvo said the whole ordeal has been a nightmare and he is in a lot of pain.
