Workplace Health and Safety is investigating the death of a four-year-old boy who was injured in a swing set accident while staying at an Airbnb in Queensland's Sunshine Coast hinterland at the weekend. A seven-year-old girl also suffered a broken arm. Workplace Health and Safety said it was looking into the death because it happened at an Airbnb — which is classified as a business. The little boy's death has raised questions about who's liable when things go wrong at an Airbnb, and what consumers can do to protect themselves from legal traps.
