Dallas Cowboys players sued by parent of kid who almost drowned

Three Dallas Cowboys players, defensive end Anthony Spencer, wide receiver Miles Austin, and cornerback Brandon Carr, are being sued for a million dollards by the parents of a child who almost drowned at a football camp they hosted, according to TMZ.

From TMZ:

The parents … filed the suit against Miles Austin, Anthony Spencer, and Brandon Carr … claiming it’s their fault James nearly drowned during a football camp held at the University of North Texas, and bearing Spencer’s name.

The boy reportedly sank to the bottom of a pool — while there were roughly 125 other kids in the water — and had to be pulled out, given CPR, and taken to a nearby hospital.

Now his parents are pointing the finger at the players and the company that organized the camp — claiming it was their responsibility to hire better lifeguards, and make sure the pool was safe for swimmers.

The lawsuit doesn’t specify the boy’s injuries, but says he suffered mental anguish, disfigurement, and physical impairment.

It wouldn’t be a Cowboys season without some kind of side show. I don’t remember hearing about this over the summer and I live in Dallas. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, and for the Cowboys it is yet another distraction.
