MOSCOW, March 11 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case has been opened over the death of a boy at a snow tubing facility outside Moscow, a spokesman for the Russian Investigations Committee told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
According to Vladimir Markin, the accident took place on Saturday evening. The 12-year-old boy and his parents were spending holidays at the Artus Spa Hotel in Moscow region’s Mytishchi district. “The parents rented a tube to ride down an icy slope,” he said. The boy chose an unsafe course to tube down the slope and hit a ropeway pylon. He received an open cerebral injury and died on the way to hospital.
The criminal case was opened on charges of offering services that do not meet safety requirements, which caused accidental death.
“The site has been examined, a forensic study has been appointed. Investigators are checking the hotel’s documents regulating safety measures to be done by its staff. Investigators plan to interrogate all staff members,” Markin said.
Another such case was reported in Moscow on February 20. A three-year-old girl received a lethal injury while going down a slide at a kindergarten. Forensic examination revealed that the girl died of suffocation. A criminal case was opened on charges of causing accidental death. An investigation is underway.
