Company fined after letting man plunge to his death

THE company responsible for a high ropes adventure course where an Auckland man plunged to his death has been fined $24,500 and ordered to pay the man's family $80,000 reparation.

Clifford Paul Brabet, 57, fell almost 14 metres while taking part in a team-building day at Tree Adventures in Woodhill Forest, near Helensville in March last year.

A wire to which Mr Brabet was connected became unattached and he fell to his death just days before the company was to change its procedures, a move that would have saved him.

Tree Adventures pleaded guilty.
