Ratanga junction faces R320 000 claim after gas explosion

By Chanel September

The owners of Ratanga Junction theme park are facing a R320 000 damages action in the Cape High Court, after a trainee suffered severe burns on her hands and ankles during a gas explosion at the park’s food court more than two years ago.

Melanie Abrahams 22 of Bridgetown says she reported for training at the theme park’s food court as one of the group of 62 trainees, when the blast took place.

But owners say that outside technicians were supposed to ensure that the gas installation was safe and that the necessary safety features were in place.

According to the Cape Times Abrahams is claiming loss of earnings, medical expenses and general damages.

If the court find the theme park negligent they will argue that Abrahams contributed to her injuries by not vacating the premises after she was aware of the smell of a gas leak in the kitchen.
