Jack was a university student at USQ who decided to work on a cattle station in the Northern Territory over the holidays. His parents were reluctant to let him go but they eventually agree. The station owner and Jack’s employer sent Jack out to a remote waterhole to check the condition of the cattle. The truck Jack was driving broke down and because his mobile phone was out of battery he could not phone for help. Sadly Jack died and the understandable emotional shock felt by his parents on the news of his death resulted in them suing Jack’s employer for emotional injuries.
