“Injuries That Were Not Survivable”
One of the most recent tragedies to hit a theme park occurred at Dreamworld in Queensland Australia, that left four people dead and two children extremely traumatized. Visitors to the largest theme park in Australia were on the Thunder River Rapids Ride when the “flume” carriage they were riding flipped, causing the riders to fall on a conveyor belt where they were caught in the machinery in a grueling manner. Two children, ages 10 and 12 managed to escape the “flume” and were reported to be experiencing extreme emotional distress. Sadly, the mother of the ten-year-old was among those killed.
