Parents Sue Australian Tourist and Watercraft Rental Company for the Wrongful Death of Their Teenage Daughter
As a reward for the good grades that she achieved in school, sixteen-year-old Kristen Fonseca, was taken on a Hawaiian vacation by her parents. While enjoying a ride upon a jet ski at Keehi Lagoon in Honolulu, Kristen’s vacation ended tragically, when she was struck and killed by another tourist on a jet ski. Investigators discovered that twenty-year-old Tyson Dagley, an Australian tourist, was standing upon his jet ski and posing for his girlfriend, when his jet ski struck the one operated by Kristen.
Kristen’s parents filed suit against Mr. Dagley and Aloha Jet Ski, the company that rented the watercraft to both Kristen and Mr. Dagley, for the ”horrible emotional pain, suffering and distress” that Kristen’s parents sustained and for the medical bills that they incurred, due to the recklessness and/or negligence of Mr. Dagley and the company. The suit alleges that Mr. Dagley was reckless and/or negligent in the operation of his jet ski. Moreover, the complaint alleges that the company’s employee failed to instruct Mr. Dagley in the proper use of the jet ski and that the company’s employee failed to prevent Mr. Dagley’s reckless and/or negligent behavior.
