Vienna: A six-year-old girl is being sued for more than $38,000 in Austria for allegedly causing a skiing accident which left a woman with serious injuries. The woman has started legal action against the child, with the Feldkirch Provisional Court considering this week whether someone of this age could be held responsible for causing an accident, the Independent reports cited reports from The Local Austria news paper. Under Austrian law, a child aged under 14 cannot be held responsible in cases of civil wrongs, such as personal injury accidents.

“First and foremost, supervisors such as the instructors and the parents would be sued for neglecting their supervising responsibilities,” according to a court spokeswoman. The case against the six-year-old was brought after an earlier attempt to sue the adult who had been supervising the girl at the time of the accident was dismissed, according to the Daily Telegraph. An exception to 14 being the age of legal responsibility in Austria was when a child under this age would have been capable of judging the consequences of their actions. The court is now considering whether the girl was at fault in this way and can therefore be held legally responsible for the accident.

  • Due to the cold weather of Austria Salman Khan faces health problem while shooting Tiger Zinda Hai.

Tiger Zinda Hai starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be Released on 22 December 2017

Challenging weather conditions in Austria during the shoot of “Tiger Zinda Hai” led to a health issue for actor Salman Khan, says director Ali Abbas Zafar.

Talking about shooting for the film in the locales of Austria, Zafar said in a statement: “What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve.

“For a significant chapter in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, we had to film in a place that had a certain amount of aloofness and isolation. We found that spot in the mountains of Austria, a place where time seemed to stand still and frozen.

“Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally, a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence.”

The team shot a song there.

“We had expertise on our side since we worked with an international crew that has worked on the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’. In the end, as a team, we are fairly satisfied that we managed to film here successfully,” he added.

“Tiger Zinda Hai”, which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a sequel to “Ek Tha Tiger”. It is slated to release on December 22 and has been shot across five countries. (IANS)
