Dreamworld Inquest: Former first aid staff says little could’ve been done to save lives

Dreamworld’s former first aid manager told a Coronial Inquiry no doctors or in surgeons in the world could have saved the lives of four people killed on the Thunder River Rapids Ride in 2016.

The inquest into the death of Kate Goodchild, her brother Luke Dorsett and his partner Roozi Araghi, and Cindy Low has heard from a number of former staff today, most notably two paramedics.

Shane Green worked as the first aid manager and told the court nothing could’ve been done to save their lives.


“If we’d have had the world’s leading cardiothoracic surgeons, neurosurgeons and trauma surgeons in the park with all their equipment, nothing would have changed the outcome,” he said.

Earlier, Mr Green explained that he thought he had a “cracking” first aid team and they had never trained for or envisaged a scenario like the incident on October 25, 2016.

Another paramedic, John Clark, worked at the theme park part-time and said the staff were well equipped to do their job.
