During a family vacation in Orlando, Florida, an 11-year-old girl was fatally electrocuted when she reached into a pond on a miniature golf course to recover a ball. The water had an electric current running through it.
She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.The resort’s safety personnel believe that the fatality occurred due to a faulty pump that was incorrectly connected to the wrong circuit breaker causing a flow of electricity into the pond; however, investigators could not determine the cause.
Property owners are usually responsible for providing a safe environment
for their guests and visitors, and as this case reveals, failure to do
so can lead to fatalities.
The law in Florida clearly dictates that an injury or death caused by the negligence of a property owner can result in the property owner being held responsible for damages.
