Oakwood to be prosecuted over 2004 death on Hydro
Posted by: Webmaster | 19 May 2007 17:58

Hayley Williams, 16, from Pontypool in Wales, died at Oakwood Theme Park in 2004 after falling from Hydro, an Intamin River Plunge ride similar to Perilous Plunge at Knott's Berry Farm, California.

At a coronary inquest a year ago, the jury were directed to return either an accidental death or narrative verdict, which simply outlined the facts and circumstances of Ms Williams's death.

After the jury returned a narrative verdict, the family expressed their disappointment that an unlawful killing verdict was not considered.

Now the Health and Safety Excecutive is to prosecute the park, the family of the victim have been informed of this decision.
