Man Sues Festival Promoters For Broken Ankle After Getting Stuck In The Mud At Oxegen

A Kildare man has sued MCD after breaking his ankle while attending the Oxegen music festival in 2007.

Mark Ponisi claims he was watching the Kings Of Leon when his feet got stuck in the mud and he was subsequently knocked over and trampled, leaving him with a broken ankle.

He told the High Court that the mud was about three inches high and that MCD "exposed him to a surface area which was dangerous and unsafe".

However, the promoters have refuted the claims and say that Mr Ponisi "failed to exercise any adequate caution for his own safety".

A judgement on the case is expected next week.
