Emily Jordan’s Family Victimized Twice!

When Israelis are killed in New Zealand, their families hit the 8-figure compensation jackpot; the Brits get peanuts [and probably a pair of discounted air tickets.]

Miss Jordan, who graduated from Swansea University , drowned after becoming trapped beneath underwater rocks for 20 minutes.

Chris Jordan, father of Emily Jordan who was drowned in the Kawarau River Gorge in Central Otago in April 2008, received $80,000 [£33,600] in reparations for his “special Daughter’s) negligent homicide. It had cost the family about 10 times as much to raise her.

It’s not known why he agreed to the micky-mouse death compensation, unless the media aren’t telling us everything.

The company, Mad Dog River Boarding, responsible for the victim’s death, was fined $66,000 for Emily Jordan’s negligent homicide.

Emily Jordan’s father told The Otago Daily Times: “We have got to get something out of this, otherwise Emily’s death would be for nothing.

“Many activities in New Zealand carry little or no regulation.

“I have a major problem with this. If anyone wanted to, say, start up a new activity tomorrow going down a river on your head, it would be permissible.”

If indeed NZ Govt hasn’t secretly topped up the reparations to the Jordan family, then they should sue the government.
