The company representative who is leading the trip then puts Dave and Solomon into their harness, connects the harnesses to the cords and tells Dave and Solomon to jump. Dave jumps. Solomon jumps after his father, and is injured. If Solomon sues the company for his injuries he will not be able to recover because he assumed the risk:
