(Houston, TX) Houston attorneys, Mo Aziz of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, Derrell Wright of The Law Office of Derrell Wright, and Allena Wright of The Law Office of Allena J. Wright, represent the parents of a 6-year-old boy who drowned in a community swimming pool. A lawsuit against The Community Association of King Crossing, Inc. and Pulte Homes of Texas, L.P. has been filed.
On May 5, 2019, Jocelyn Kang, a Deputy Constable of Harris County Precinct 7 and mother of two, took her children to the community swimming pool at King Crossing in Katy, Texas. The pool and the surrounding area were overcrowded due to people celebrating Cinco De Mayo. The lifeguards on duty did not have control of the crowd, nor were they enforcing any sort of maximum occupancy rules. Additionally, the pool and surrounding area did not have visible warning signs regarding maximum occupancy.
As a result, Mrs. Kang’s oldest son, Ga Ram, drowned in the pool. A lifeguard was sitting a mere ten feet away from Ga Ram as he struggled for his life. Eventually, a second lifeguard saw Ga Ram in the crowded pool and pulled him out of the water. Ga Ram was then transported to Texas Children’s Hospital where he later died due to his injuries. Mrs. Kang hopes that by telling Ga Ram’s story and warning of the dangers of overcrowded community pools, other children will not be victims of drowning.
Mr. and Mrs. Kang and their legal team will be present at the press conference to answer questions. The press conference will be held on July 2, 2019 at 12:30 p.m. (CST) at the law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, located at 800 Commerce Street, Houston, Texas, 77002.
