The family of a shooting instructor who was accidentally killed by a 9-year-old girl has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Arizona gun range.
Shooting instructor Charles Vacca was killed on August 25th, 2014, after he allowed the girl to fire the Uzi on her own.
The lawsuit filed in the Mohave County Superior Court states that “the Uzi was not a safe or appropriate weapon to entrust to a 9-year-old girl like the Child Shooter, which caused her to lose control of the weapon when firing.”
Parents of an 11-year-old girl who died after choking on a marshmallow have filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
According to Jason and Iris Estabrooks, their daughter Azriel was attending a birthday party at Raymond and Alison Dugan’s home on April 16th when she ingested a marshmallow that got stuck in her throat. “After suffering the pain and fear of choking and an inability to breath and an inability to speak, Azriel lost consciousness and fell to the ground,” the lawsuit claimed.
She was later taken to hospital where she died on April 21.
The lawsuit accuses the hosts of carelessness and negligence.
