Seen a few posts on Chessington's official Facebook page about an incident that appears to have occurred yesterday.
It seems a young girl was on a bridge in a queueline, reports suggest Tomb Blaster, and I guess it's got to be that or Rameses, and people are saying that there was a hole in this bridge which she fell through.
Obviously a terrible thing to happen - and if there was a hole in the queueline bridge Chessington need to explain why it was there and what safety checks the bridge had undergone. I think checking the entire queueline is part of the opening procedure so perhaps it wasn't done correctly or the hole appeared at some stage during the day whilst the attraction was operational, either way someone should probably have spotted it.
I'm treading very carefully here because I don't want to lay the blame on Chessington for something that isn't their fault, and even if they are responsible I know for sure no one there would have maliciously planned for something like this to happen and all the staff are probably feeling a bit shaken up by it.
Latest reports from several people claiming to be the girl's uncles/aunts are saying she's in hospital with a fractured skull, fractured ribs and other internal injuries. It seems initial posts about it on Facebook were deleted by the park, but as more came through from an obviously large number of witnesses, they seem to have gone with it and wished her well. I only post this here because one member of the family has threatened to take it to The Sun, and that just makes them look like an idiot.
But idiot or not, my thoughts are of course with the young girl.
