Toddler who got scalded by hot coffee on Ryanair flight wins close to €19,000 as court hears she sat in agony for more than three hours




A judge heard at a personal injury hearing that adequate first aid was not provided on a Ryanair flight when a 17-month-old baby was scratched and had to sit in pain for more than three hours, reports Independent.

Judge Terry O’Sullivan made his observations before the District Civil Court, considering the airline’s €15,000 settlement offer to Skye Callaghan, now seven, from Kil, Co. Kildare.

The court heard that Skye was travelling on a Ryanair flight from Gran Canaria to Dublin with her parents, Gary and Amanda, on January 2, 2018, and was sleeping on her mother’s lap when a carton of coffee, allegedly with a lid or missing in the seat, went missing and spread to her right leg child.

Defence lawyer Anthony Lowry, on behalf of the family, said Skye suffered very serious and painful burns to her legs and feet, reports Independent.
