"She developed a problem in her lungs because of the chemicals in the wave pool," Bird said.
The Freemans are also suing hospitals Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston and Scottish Rite for allegedly failing to diagnose and manage Laterrika's condition. Nodson Corporation — the company that produced the oxygenation machine that Laterrika was attached to — is also named in the suit, accused of manufacturing a defective machine.
In the suit, the Freemans ask for a jury trial and for damages to be awarded as compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses and “the full value of the life of their daughter.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reached out Friday to Six Flags, which was unable to comment on the suit. Children's Healthcare of Atlanta was unable to be reached for comment.
