Negligence Duty to take care. The Queen's Bench Division, in dismissing the claimant's claim for personal injury arising from an adventure activity course, held that the defendant company was not liable for the injuries sustained as, on the evidence, there had been no foreseeable real risk of injury and that accident had been a tragic, freak accident for which no blame could be established.
