GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - The family of an 11-year-old boy who was killed while sledding at a Grand Haven park is blaming a part-time groundskeeper.
Chance Nash of Nunica died in 2009 when he struck a branch that had fallen at Duncan Park. The injury to his abdomen caused fatal internal bleeding.
It is the third lawsuit filed against various defendants associated with the park. The other cases have been dismissed. The latest lawsuit accuses 71-year-old groundskeeper Robert DeHare of not keeping the sledding area free of hazards.
DeHare tells the Grand Haven Tribune (http://bit.ly/WRn5lH) that he's very concerned about the lawsuit. Duncan Park trustee Ed Lystra says he's angry that a groundskeeper is being targeted.
