Chili’s Cancun closed for unsafe playground after child injured

Cancun, Q.R. — A popular American restaurant chain has been closed in the Cancun Hotel Zone after a child fell in the on-site playground, receiving injuries.

The Municipal Civil Protection Office closed the Chili’s restaurant located in the Malecón Las Americas shopping complex for not having the necessary security measures in the playground.

The director of Civil Protection, Antonio Lomelín, said that the facilities of the restaurant were reviewed after an accident in the playground Saturday. He explained that a child was playing when she fell due to a broken safety net. She sustained injuries that resulted in her being taken to a private hospital where she was later released.

He confirmed that when making the revisions, it was found that the premises did not have the proper security measures in the children’s area, so the establishment was closed.
