My son was killed swimming in the Maury River at Jordans Point Park in Lexington in 2006. There were no signs, or warnings at the time. He was swept over the dam along with a friend. The friend luckily was saved. Now the City has posted signage, and strung a cable with buoys on it across the river in case a boater or swimmer gets in trouble. We will try to make this a law. The Municipalities are immune from lawsuits unless you can prove gross negligence. The hide behind Soveriegn Immunity. We had a mistrial and need to appeal to the VA Supreme Ct and retry the case.
In any event I can feel the pain that Mrs. Underwood is feeling right now and will feel the rest of her life. I can understand the pain and frustration that her friends are feeling right now as well. Feel free to contact me any time and I be helpful in this. My email is [email protected] . Peace.
