Senior Dreamworld Staff To Front Inquest
Senior Dreamworld officials are expected to give evidence when an inquest into the deaths of four tourists while on a ride at Australia's biggest theme park resumes on Monday.
Cindy Low, Kate Goodchild, her brother Luke Dorsett and his partner Roozi Araghi died when two rafts on the Thunder River Rapids ride flipped and crashed into each other in October 2016.
A coronial inquest on the Gold Coast has so far heard from staff who operated the ride on the day of the tragedy, those who were first to respond to the horrific scene caused when the ride failed and investigating authorities.
During cross-examination at a hearing last month, Dreamworld's former operations manager, Troy Margetts, denied pressuring staff not to speak with police.

He has been the most senior representative of the park to front the inquest but is expected to be followed by other high-ranking staff.
Four former park employees are suing Dreamworld for psychological injuries suffered on the day of the tragedy.
Ardent Leisure announced last month John Osborne would take over as Dreamworld's new chief executive.
His appointment follows the departure of predecessor Craig Davidson, who left in July after the first coronial sitting.
