Judges awards 80,000 euros for Aquashow accident

Judges have finally ruled on the horrific accident at Aquashow, Quarteira, that left a child scarred for life. The four-year-old had his face slashed by an eagle that swooped down disobeying his trainer’s orders in 2005. It has taken that long for judges to rule the child deserves €80,000 in compensation for the injuries sustained, the trauma – that left him terrified of animals – and the agony of two reconstructive operations.
