Family Sues City Three Years After Teen's Drowning

Three years after Eddie Gayyean, a 17-year-old, drowned in his high school’s pool, his family is suing the city of Lowell, Mass., for wrongful death.

In the lawsuit, Gayyean’s parents allege the school was negligent in its maintenance of pool property and failed to restrict and control access to the pool. They also allege that the school should have been aware that people were able to get into the pool and that unauthorized after-hours use “presented an unreasonable risk” to students.

The family is seeking $100,000 for pain and suffering as a result of Guyyean’s drowning.
