Family of man who died at water park sues
Posted on Friday, August 19th, 2016
The children of the 83-year-old Irudayam Yeddanapalli filed a lawsuit against the Pflugerville, Texas-based water park Hawaiian Falls for damages of over $100,000 after Yeddanapalli drowned at the water park in May 2014.
According to the lawsuit, Yeddanapalli was submerged at the bottom of a wading pool for a full two to three minutes before lifeguards came to his rescue. Afterwards, Travis County Emergency Services personnel performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him, but they were unable to bring him back to consciousness. Scott Hendler, the family’s legal counsel, said: “Had he been pulled out of the pool immediately and administered CPR, he had a 90% chance of survival.”
