Mother settles with Lake Compounce insurer for 2000 death of son

Posted Thursday, August 17, 2006 9:47 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Six years after a young Hartford boy drowned at Lake Compounce, the boy's mother has agreed to a $1.2 million settlement with the amusement park's insurance carrier. The boy was riding the Lake Plunge waterslide on July 1, 2000, when his inner tube flipped at the bottom, where the slide empties into the lake. A current swept him beneath a floating dock. Lifeguards found him there, unconscious, more than 20 minutes later.

May both the park and the family find their way to healing.
