A woman is suing TripAdvisor after falling off a runaway camel during a vacation in Morocco.
According to the Associated Press, 24-year-old New Jersey native Breanne Ayala “is accusing Massachusetts-based TripAdvisor and its subsidiary Viator of negligence and breach of contract for failing to ensure the camel tour company was operating safely.”
The incident happened back in 2018 when Ayala and her family booked a sunset camel tour in Marrakech, Morocco through Viator.
Ayala claims during the tour her camel ran off from the caravan causing her to fall and break her arm. The lawsuit states an ambulance was not called until the tour company owner arrived an hour later.
The accident left Ayala hospitalized for two days following surgery in Morocco.
The Associated Press reports Ayala claims she and her family were never given a safety briefing before embarking on the tour – and that during the tour she was told her camel was pregnant and about one month away from giving birth.
According to the Associated Press, TripAdvisor has refused to comment on the pending litigation.
