    Singapore family to sue HK Disneyland for woman's death

    Apologies if this has already been posted, but I couldn't see it anywhere here. I posted this elsewhere the other day...

    Singapore family to sue HK Disneyland for woman's death

    A SINGAPOREAN family is planning to sue Hong Kong Disneyland after a family member died during a visit to the tourist attraction in September.

    Ms Joanna Boey told Today she has documents a transcript of the recorded telephone conversation between her insurance company and the staff of Hollywood Hotel in Hong Kong Disneyland to back her allegations that Disneyland did not provide any medical assistance when her late mother, Madam Nge Yoi Chan (picture), 82, fell ill at the theme park. Mdm Nge passed away later that day, about four hours after she first felt unwell.

    They should be careful, the last guy that sued HKDL ended up dead.

    It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out. The whole dr thing is interesting...I'd like to know how many hotels do have doctors on staff...

    Wow, in only less than a year HK Disneyland has faced more trouble than some parks face in a lifetime it seems.

    wow, you would think the family would have been smart enough to call for an ambulance themselves right away...

    I don't know about the laws overseas, but if an autopsy proves that she would have died anyways, then Disney cannot be faulted.

    She probably had a good three months left.

    What is the punishment for frivolous lawsuits in Singapore or Hong Kong? I hope it's a caning.

    Sorry to bump, but here is a follow-up to the original post:

    # The park says they promptly called an ambulance for Madam Nge
    # The park also says they have registered nurses at its first-aid station
    # Now, Hong Kong's Legislative Council health services panel chairman wants to use the case to review medical support at the park

    Oy. Every thing that happens at HKDL becomes a political thing in Hong Kong.

    Re: Singapore family to sue HK Disneyland for woman's death

    One more follow up to this story that won't go away:

    HK government blamed in Disney death

    HONG KONG, China (UPI) -- The daughter of a woman who died at Hong Kong Disneyland last year has accused the Hong Kong government of a coverup after learning no inquest will be held.

    Singaporean Joanna Boey said she plans to pursue her case through U.S. courts, the South China Morning Post reported Thursday.

    Nge Yoi Chan was 82 when she died of heart problems at the theme park in September.

    Boey said she was surprised to hear the investigation into her mother`s death had been closed, because she had never been contacted for evidence she holds, including transcripts of conversations with an insurance company which contradict Disneyland statements that staff did everything they could to help.

    Boey claims that when her mother became ill at the theme park, Disney staff offered no medical services.

    She maintains that if Hong Kong authorities had been sincere about investigating the case, they would have contacted her for evidence.

    'They want to cover everything up. ... The government does have a 50 percent share in Disney,' she said.
