Cop sues parents of drowning victim

UPDATE: Officer.com is reporting that the sergeant in this case is dropping the lawsuit.

Finally some sanity to this thing. Wow.

From the What The Fuck?!? files comes this little gem:

A Florida cop was called to the scene of a drowning victim. The victim was a baby who fell into the family pool. When the officer arrived, she slipped on a puddle of water and hurt her knee.

From The Sun-Sentinel:
Rescuers were able to bring him back to life, but he suffered severe brain damage and cannot walk, talk or even swallow.

Now, his family faces another burden: 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.

The officer is suing the parents for $1 million dollars.

Comments? What do you think about this case. From what I understand she's on disability since she was injured on the job. Why would you sue someone who legitimately called 911. The baby ended up surviving but with profound disabilities.

She must be black.

Eichhorn sounds jewish.

Maybe we can start suing the bangers, dealers, and other criminals for our alcoholism and divorces. If they weren't fuck ups we'd be sober responsible husbands.

2513 would sue for the money too.
