Naya Rivera’s ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, has filed a wrongful death suit on behalf of their young son, Josey.
Naya accidentally drowned in July.
Dorsey is suing the United Water Conservation District and the county’s Parks and Recreation Management for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress, according to Us Weekly.
According to Dorsey, the boat Naya and Josey rented to sail around Lake Piru didn’t comply with Coast Guard safety standards. The documents claim that the boat didn’t have flotation devices, which are required by California law.
“At the Lake Piru Recreation Area boating dock, Naya rented a pontoon boat from PMC – a boat that, it turned out, was not equipped with a safely accessible ladder, adequate rope, an anchor, a radio, or any security mechanisms to prevent swimmers from being separated from their boats,” the suit alleges. “Disturbingly, later inspection revealed that the boat was not even equipped with any flotation or lifesaving devices, in direct violation of California law…”
