Dreamworld tragedy inquest resumes

ADDITIONAL documents provided by Dreamworld in relation to the Thunder River Rapids Ride were "undesirable", according to counsel assisting the coroner Ken Fleming.

Mr Fleming made an almost 20 minute speech to the inquest into the Thunder River Rapids Ride about the lateness of documents which were only provided last week.

"We are still here in the last tranche (of hearings) bar two days still receiving documents which should have been given to us in December, November and January, 2016 and 2017 "They should have been given to us and here we are still waiting for them.

"It is undesirable … one hopes this inquest will not be delayed … for the state of the families or for the facilities that it ties up for so long."

The inquest has resumed this morning for the third block of two weeks after hearings in July and last month.

Dreamworld's barrister Bruce Hodkingson said the park and provided all documents and the most recent documents provided were related to a new request for documents.

The inquest is examining what happened after a pump stopped working on the ride, causing water levels to drop and a raft to become stuck on the conveyor belt on October 25, 2016.

That raft was hit by another carrying Luke Dorsett, his sister Kate Goodchild, her daughter Ebony, 12, Roozbeh Araghi, Cindy Low and her son, Kieran, 10.

The four adults were killed. The children were uninjured.

Former Dreamworld and Arden Leisure group safety manager Angus Hutchings has taken the stand.

He is expected to spend two days giving evidence.
