Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit after Drowning

Posted under Uncategorized

The family of a 16 year old who drowned at a Georgia water park has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

The drowning was ruled accidental by the coroner’s office and the medical examiner has said that alcohol was not in the victim’s system at the time he died. The full toxicology report has not been released.

The lawsuit alleges that the park’s management was at fault because they did not keep the water clear enough to see the bottom of the pool. The victim’s body was found in water about 12 feet deep. In addition, the lawsuit claims the lifeguards were not attentive enough to all patrons.
