Legal Claim Filed Against San Diego Over Negligent Lifeguard
The parents of an 18-year-old Crawford High School graduate who drowned in Mission Beach in June of last year and whose body was never found say the city of San Diego failed to prevent their son’s death.
In a newly filed legal claim obtained by CBS 8, attorneys representing the parents of Woodlain Zachee Prudhomme say city lifeguards were understaffed the day their son and two of his friends went swimming near Tower 15 in Mission Beach, so much so, according to the claim, a lifeguard directed the three teens to swim towards another lifeguard stand, directly into a powerful rip current.
Reads the legal claim, “a lifeguard negligently directed him to swim into, rather than away from, a dangerous location due to the presence of a rip current.”
