There just are no words for this situation

long story short...1 year old boy gets into pool. Parents find him, bring him inside to revive him...cops show up to help and one slips in a puddle of water inside, gets hurt and is now SUING THE FAMILY of the boy...who by the way, is several brain damaged and will never be normal again.

here is the story:
Cops falls on the job, sues family

some lovely little tidbits:

  1. One of the rescuers, Casselberry police Sgt. Andrea Eichhorn, is suing, alleging the family left a puddle of water on the floor that afternoon, causing her to slip and fall.
  2. accusing them of negligence. They were careless, according to the suit, and allowed the home they shared to become unsafe
  3. If the Cosmillos had made their pool baby-proof, police would not have been called to the scene, there would have been no water on the floor, and Eichhorn would not have hurt herself, he said

I really cannot say anything on this subject without being foul, so I will let you draw your own conclusions.

All I can say is, if I were in that city, I'd gladly sit on the jury for this trial!
