Teen Slips and Dies in Freak Kentucky Lake Accident

While on a family trip to Lake Cumberland, a 17-year-old high school slipped, hit his head on a dock, and then fell under water. The slip and fall accident gave the boy such a severe hit to the head that we was unconscious when he went underwater, drowning before his family or witnesses could save him.

According to the surviving family, the boy took a small aluminum boat to get ice for the rest of the family. After returning with the ice, he went to a nearby slip. While exiting the boat, he slipped, hitting his head on a concrete portion of the dock, knocking him unconscious. He then sank in the lake.

Although his father jumped into the water to save him, the water was too deep, and the boy fell to the bottom of the lake, more than thirty feet below the surface. Rescuers later recovered his body.

At the moment, it is unclear if the dock was defective or if anyone beside the boy is at fault for the accident, but if the family were to pursue a slip and fall claim, they should obtain a personal injury attorney.

Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common ways people injure themselves in the United States. Slip and fall accidents can occur because of dangerous property, construction defects, or even wet surfaces that are unmarked.

If you or your loved one has suffered injuries from a slip and fall accident, please contact an experienced slip and fall attorney as soon as possible to schedule a free case evaluation.
