Second casualty at Jewel Changi Airport’s Canopy park is a 14-year old girl



Just a few days ago, Jewel Changi Airport’s much anticipated Canopy Park made headlines for an accident where a woman tripped on the 250-metre long Sky Nets and sustained a deep cut on her hand.

We didn’t expect to hear of someone else getting injured just a few days later.

On June 19 (Wednesday), Ms Susan Goh, 45, posted a Facebook post recounting what happened to her 14-year old niece while she was playing at the Mirror Maze Attraction.

While the girl had been playing with five other children, she sustained a deep gash on her cheek which resulted in her needing to get nine stitches. The incident happened around 5.15pm and the girl was assisted by the attraction ranger on duty who brought her to terminal 3 for medical attention. Ms Goh mentioned in her Facebook post that the remedy procedure needed some improvement.

The girl was then referred to Raffles Hospital for further treatment and there, the doctor mentioned that the cut will most likely leave a scar.

The medical bill for the stitches amounted to a whooping S$4,000 and the amount was paid for by the girls family.

Jewel gave the following reply to the mishap:

There have been many mixed feelings towards the two accidents. On one hand, some individuals feel like it is crucial for Jewel to improve their safety measures before someone else gets hurt, while others feel that it is the users own responsibility to stay safe.

Many parents have also voiced out their concerns towards the Canopy Park, with some saying that they feel like they can only bring their children there when Jewel takes more precautions.
