Coroner Investigates Cause

Inquest Begins Into Dreamworld Ride Tragedy Today

A coroner will start looking into the Dreamworld tragedy today, nearly two years after four people lost their lives in a freak ride accident.

The first stage of an inquest begins on the Gold Coast on Monday, 20 months after Cindy Low, Kate Goodchild, Luke Dorsett and Roozi Araghi died when the Thunder River Rapids ride malfunctioned in October 2016.

It'll examine what caused the fatal incident, as well as the safety measures in places, ride maintenance and staff training.

This stage of the inquest will last two weeks with more than 50 witnesses set to take the stand.
