Girl Left Brain Damaged By KFC Chicken Twister

Disabled...Monika Samaan

Fast food giant KFC has been ordered to pay more than £5million to a girl left brain damaged and paralysed after eating a chicken Twister wrap.
Monika Samaan, now 14, got salmonella poisoning and fell into a coma for six months when she was aged just seven.
After finally waking she was left suffering spastic quadriplegia, a condition that affects the movement of all four limbs, and is now wheelchair-bound.
And her parents, who blame the restaurant chain, have now won their long legal battle for compensation and been awarded the AUS$8million payout.
KFC have vigourously denied responsibility for the poisoning, and are now set to appeal.
The firm said in a statement: “We believe the evidence showed KFC did not cause this tragedy and, after reviewing the judgment and seeking further advice from our lawyers, we have decided to appeal Justice Rothman’s decision.”
The trial, which concluded last week, heard Monika’s dad, mum and brother also required hospital treatment after sharing the meal in Sydney, Australia.
Family lawyer George Vlahakis said: “Monika’s severe brain damage and severe disability has already exhausted the very limited resources of the family.
“Monika is now a big girl and they are finding it increasingly difficult to lift her and to look after her basic needs as well as look after Monika’s younger siblings.
“The compensation ordered is very much needed.
“KFC have to date been determined that Monika does not receive a cent.”
KFC’s lawyer Ian Barker QC said the family could not prove they had eaten the Twister.
