Dreamworld Have Admitted There Were Problems With The Ride
Dreamworld boss Craig Davidson has revealed that the Thunder River Rapids ride was not shut down for maintenance on the day four patrons were killed.
However, he has confessed the attraction had ‘stopped a couple of times’ but not taken offline at all.
The revelation has resulted in newspaper headlines today suggesting that 'warnings were ignored' on the day of the tragedy.
‘On that day we had not shut down the ride for maintenance,’ he said during a radio interview on the ABC. ‘But the ride had stopped a couple of times throughout the day.’
Davidson did not go into details as to why the ride had stopped, citing the ongoing investigation into the accident as the reason fr his silence.
It has now been revealed that the ride will be demolished, out of respect for the four victims Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett, Roozi Araghi and Cindy Low, who lost their lives on the day.
