Family sues city over fire pit accident
March 14, 2012 | 4:09 p.m.

The family of a boy who sustained severe burns after falling into a Huntington Beach fire pit has sued the city, according to the Orange County Register.

Six-year-old Seth Richardson fell backward into the smoldering fire pit at Huntington City Beach about 6 p.m. April 17 while flying a kite, attorney Rob Gibson said in August.

The family filed a claim against the city Aug. 10 asking for $500,000. The lawsuit was filed in Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 15, according to the Register.

Gibson could not be reached Wednesday before the Independent's press time.

• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
