Lawsuit filed after 3-year-old drowns in water park
Posted on November 26th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
A water park in Ohio was sued last week for wrongful death over a tragic drowning of a 3-year-old boy in a park kiddie pool that occurred this past August. The complaint alleges that the park failed to have enough life guards on duty the day of the accident, which was a violation the state had previously disciplined the company for in the past. According to the reports from police, emergency personnel and the park, the mother lost sight of the boy from her chair next to the pool and went to look for him. Unfortunately, lifeguards had already found the boy drowned in the water. The plaintiffs in the suit firmly believe that more lifeguards would have prevented the accident, especially when considering that there were only 67 lifeguards responsible for the 250,000 buy paxil online canada square foot area, with only 5 watching the outdoor areas. Since 2005, the park has received four safety violations, most relating to the lack of lifeguards present at rides and attractions. Thus, the park had no excuse for the lack of guards the day of the accident.
