The family of a 2-year-old who died in floodwaters at a Tennessee state park back in June has filed a lawsuit against the state. Officers say Steven Pierce of Kentucky died after he and his father were swept away in a flash flood as they tried to evacuate from Cummins Falls State Park. The lawsuit filed this week reportedly argues human errors contributed to his death. It says greater safety measures should have been in place, or shouldn’t have been open at all with rain in the forecast. And it accuses rangers of misdirecting Curtis Pierce by telling him to continue along a trail instead of finding higher ground. Curtis Pierce was able to be saved.
