Your view - iPad Incident at playground

Postby BeContented » Wed Dec 25, 2013 7:07 pm

A lady P sat on a bench at playground, accessing her iPad while her ~5yo dd is playing there. Her hubby is around too.
Kids were playing & throwing balls around.
A ball was about to hit another lady Y carrying a young toddler & her natural reaction was to block the ball. It flew and accidentally hit the iPad which fell to the ground.

Police was called in as lady P insisted that lady Y compensate her for the iPad. Hubby of P now called in 3 other ladies to support P to demand compensation.

My view :
It's an accident, P should bear responsibility as she is an adult and should take precautions knowing that kids are playing there.
What's your view?

Guess what. I went to kapo & ask some of the boys. Apparently lady P wasn't holding onto the iPad. She sat crossed-legged with the iPad on her lap!!
All the more her own fault lah. :slapshead:

It's just an accident, her own bad luck.

The police must be shaking heads, this type of small issue also called police. Maybe we shld hv a fine for abusing police resources :rotflmao:

If P can seek compensation from Y, then Y can seek compensation from those playing with the ball.

In any case, Y cannot be held entirely responsible.

So, only after Y managed to obtain compensation from the players, will P be able to seek compensation from Y.

If the players cannot be made liable ,then Y cannot be liable.

It is basically P vs the players.


So.. any verdict for that incident?

This is called bad luck.

If a person brings a fragile ancient antique worth millions of dollars to a football match and sit behind the goal post, and hold the antique up to admire, then the attacking team's strikers took a powerful but off-target shot, and the ball ended up among the unsuspecting spectators, first hitting someone besides the person holding the antique, thus deflecting the ball towards and breaking the antique... Like this can blame the first person hit by the ball, or the player?

The police should have confiscated the ball, gave it to P and ask her to settle the dispute with the ball!

Wasting taxpayers' $$$!

This is plain "kum gong".

Do you bring electronic gadgets to the pool? If you do, wouldn't you be extra vigilant to ensure it doesn't come into contact with water? If worse case it does, why hold other responsible unless it is outright intention?

Just like another "kum gong" incident that happened yesterday at AMK Hub. A mother brought her 4yr old son along for shopping. Never watch carefully and son goes missing. Mother went to customer service and seek assistance. Escalated into a shouting incident...only hear the mother shouting at customer service staff.

IMO, if no one looks after son, bring along must take precautions like putting a baby leash etc. But, ytday, the mother wasn't alone.

So, very often we must learn to reflect on our actions before blowing up at others.
