A $1 million civil suit is faced by Carl Crawford. The lawsuit is filed by the parents of the boy who drowned in his pool during a BBQ last month.
The parents of five-year-old Kasen Hersi has filed a civil suit against the former MLB player after their son drowned in Crawford’s pool. Hersi was wandered off on May 16th during an album release party for an artist from Crawford’s 1501 Certified Label and fell into the pool.
Bethany Lartigue, his mother’s friend, jumped into the zero-depth entry pool to rescue him but she tragically lost her life during the rescue.
The lawsuit filed by Jazmine Hernandez and Liban Hersi says their son’s death has caused mental suffering and Crawford should be held liable for failing to uphold a safe environment and management for all guests during the party.
The suit states that Hernandez has “lost her son’s love, affection, solace, advice, counsel, and comfort. In addition, she suffered a loss of emotional support and experienced tremendous mental anguish, fear, grief, and sorrow and this is likely to continue for the rest of her life,”
A statement from Crawford in regards to the lawsuit has yet to be released.
