Two Elderly Sisters Suffocated on Holiday in Spain

Two holidaymakers staying a hotel in Benidorm died as a result of a tragic holiday accident

The housing unit for their fold down hotel beds collapsed on top of the two elderly ladies due to it being insufficiently secured to the wall – they were entombed for four days causing their slow asphyxiation.

This tragic holiday accident occurred due to the instability of the bed housing unit and its inability to withstand the reasonable forces involved in the normal operation of the bed.

Compensation claims were made by the deceased estate, children and dependants under the Law Reform (Miscellaneous) Provisions Act 1934 and the Fatal Accidents Act 1976 for repatriation costs; funeral expenses; pain and suffering; dependency; and other services due to their premature deaths.

The deaths of the deceased were caused by a failure on the part of the Hotel to exercise reasonable skill and care in the operation of the premises and in the implementation of appropriate health and safety standards at the property.
