On July 4, 2007, a family celebration turned into tragedy when a cannon that was fired sent shrapnel flying and fatally injured an 8-year-old boy, Devan Vyborny, of Olympia.
Now, Devan’s parents are suing Thurston County emergency responders saying that their Medic One personnel were slow to respond, negligent in their duties and lacked professional conduct reports KOMONews.com. In the suit, the parents claim that “witnesses observed that the Medic One personnel appeared overwhelmed.” They also claim that the 911 operator canceled a helicopter airlift for the boy.
This blog reported an incident that was very similar to the accident that killed Vyborny this past 4th of July. In this year’s accident, three people suffered serious injuries due to flying shrapnel.
