$1.2 Million Wrongful Death Settlement for drowning in Prospect Heights swimming pool

Sep 05 2017

A 5-year-old child drowned in a Prospect Heights municipal swimming pool after wandering from an adjacent playground where he was being supervised by the municipality’s park district employees. It was alleged that he gained access to the pool through an unlocked gate and that lifeguards who were offering private lessons in a separate area of the pool were negligent in failing to notice him in the pool until it was too late to save him.
