The death of a man who fell from a roller coaster during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been ruled an accident.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences on Friday listed the manner of death for Brian Greenhouse as an accident. The cause of death is pending.

Greenhouse died March 20 after falling about 28 feet. His relatives have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and Ray Cammack Shows.

Livestock show CEO Leroy told the Houston Chronicle that the matter is in litigation and declined comment. A spokesman for Ray Cammack Shows also declined comment.

Family attorney Tony Denena says he's not surprised that the death was ruled accidental. The lawsuit maintains the ride did not have proper restraints.
