Playing mahjong is a choice of leisure and entertainment for many people in china. However, something unexpected happened to Mr. Liu’s father in Dongguan city of Guangdong province, because of a game of mahjong. What happened?
At about 2 pm on November 29, 2021, Mr. Liu, who was at work, suddenly received a call from Ms. Han, saying that his father had fallen from the second floor of the non-staple food store run by Ms. Han, and asked him to go there quickly.
The company where Mr. Liu works is about a 15-minute drive from Ms. Han’s non-staple food store. Although he was very anxious along the way, he always comforted himself, thinking that his father should be fine. However, when he rushed to the non-staple food store and saw his father lying on the ground, his mind went blank.
The plaintiff, Mr. Liu: When we arrived, I saw my father lying there, already unconscious. I called him, but he didn’t move subconsciously.
Afterwards, Mr. Liu’s father was rushed to Dongguan People’s Hospital for emergency treatment. As for the injury of Mr. Liu’s father, Ms. Han, who is the owner, is also very worried. It turned out that on the day of the incident, Ms. Han bought a new mahjong table. Four people including Mr. Liu’s father, relatives and friends came to the store to play. Unexpectedly, the accident happened not long after they played mahjong.
Defendant Ms. Han: I was eating next door, and a person ran over to me and told me that someone had fallen, and I felt very strange, where could it have fallen from? I ran over and saw him fall to the ground.
According to a friend who played mahjong together, they played mahjong together on the second floor of the store. Mr. Liu’s father was taller and felt that the stool was uncomfortable during the mahjong game, so he got up and wanted to put something on the stool. As a result, he accidentally stepped on the air and fell from the delivery port near the mahjong table.
Regrettably, on the second night after the incident, Mr. Liu’s father passed away due to serious injuries. At this time, the police also determined that the accident was an accident after conducting on-site inspections, and the case was not filed.
