This case involves an elderly man suffered severe injuries while ice skating at a public ice rink. The man was skating with his grandchildren during a “free skate” session at the rink in question. The ice had been resurfaced by a Zamboni 5 minutes before the man entered the rink. Within the first minute of being on the ice, the man slipped and fell breaking his hip and fracturing his wrist. It was alleged that the ice was too slippery due to improper use of the Zamboni machine.
