Tramp park faces new suit

Another lawsuit has been filed against a Richmond trampoline park, this time by a customer who allegedly got severely injured.

Changin An filed the suit Friday in B.C. Supreme Court, accusing Extreme Air Park and four associated companies of negligence leading to his injuries.

In the lawsuit, An claims that, on Oct. 21, 2017, he suffered back injuries at the Richmond centre after landing on a trampoline support fixture.

Court documents don’t specify what activity An was doing at the time of the accident, but there are allegations further into the lawsuit of staff failing to warn him of the dangers of a backward somersault.

As a result of the incident, the student claims he has sustained personal injury, loss and damage due to injuries to his mid and lower back and a spinal compression fracture.

An alleges that he has also suffered psychological and/or psychiatric injuries, including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

He claims he now suffers from pain, headaches, fatigue, sleeplessness and sustained, and continues to sustain, a loss of income and future opportunities to earn and income.

An is suing for damages, loss of past and future income and the cost of future care.

He alleges that Extreme Air and its associated companies failed to provide adequate supervision, instruction and didn’t warn him of the “dangers of performing…a backward somersault on a trampoline.”

Extreme Air Park has yet to respond to the lawsuit and none of the allegations have been tested or proven in court.

An’s alleged accident came three months before the tragic death in January 2018 of 46-year-old dad-of-two Jay Greenwood at the same park, after he dove into a foam pit while playing with his two young daughters.

His two children, through their guardian, launched legal action against the park last year.
