A Colorado jury has awarded $3.75 million in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a 12-year-old boy who drowned in the shallow end of a country club pool. It was reported that the parents filed suit against the Country Club after their son drowned during a private birthday party on June 6, 2010. It was reported that two lifeguards were on duty at the time. The youngster, who was found near the base of an unmanned lifeguard chair, was pulled out of the pool by another 12-year-old boy. The lawsuit alleges that the lifeguards were inattentive and that the club’s pool safety policies were inadequate.
