The family of an Oklahoma teenager who drowned in the ocean while visiting the Oregon coast has filed a $3.6 million lawsuit against the city of Seaside.
14-year-old Conner Miguel Wu Moore, of Tulsa, was swimming with his cousin back in July of 2016 when lifeguards saw the two boys struggling to stay afloat. Moore died in the hospital — his cousin survived.
According to The Daily Astorian, a lawsuit, filed in July by the boy’s mother, L. Nicole Moore, claims they were not warned about dangerous ocean conditions. The suit says the city did not post appropriate warning signs and lifeguards did not alert the family to the potential dangers.
Richard Freud, an attorney with City county Insurance Services, which is defending Seaside, declined to comment.
