SINGAPORE — A woman sustained a deep cut on her hand after tripping at the Sky Nets attraction at Jewel Changi Airport’s Canopy Park on Friday (June 14).

The Sky Nets, which opened to the public last Monday (June 10), is 250m long and is suspended 25m above the ground.

The woman posted a photo of her injury on her Facebook page, which has now been deleted.

A Jewel spokesperson said that the woman "tripped while walking and fell forward onto the nets" at around 5pm on Friday and was given first aid by a staff on duty.

“We regret the guest's unfortunate experience and we urge all guests to stay aware of their personal safety whilst having fun at the attractions,” the spokesperson said.

Attractions at the park have undergone “numerous safety tests including certification of material used” before they were certified safe for operations, the spokesperson said, adding that Jewel has been monitoring its ground operations closely, including refining operational procedures, since the opening of the Canopy Park.

There are safety advisories in the park regarding proper footwear, appropriate behaviour, minimum height requirement and adult supervision for young children.

The number of people allowed into each attraction is also regulated to ensure that the safety of visitors is not compromised, the spokesperson said, adding that there are park rangers stationed at all attractions to render assistance to guests.

“Hence, it is not uncommon to see rangers walking hand in hand with visitors who may require assistance during their experience on the walking net,” said the spokesperson.
