A local news station WSVN – 7 reports on a lawsuit filed by a South Florida family after their son was allegedly beaten up by a security guard on board an unidentified Carnival cruise ship.
The lawsuit contends that a 14 year-old boy snuck into a nightclub on the cruise ship with his friends. When spotted by security, the boy ran out of the club and into a stairwell where he claims that the security guard roughed him up. He says the guard “grabs me by the shirt, slams me like really heard against the wall.”
The family’s lawyer, Spencer Aronfeld, sued Carnival because the family wants the security guard fired and to prevent another family from going through a similar experience. Aronfeld is seeking damages for what he claims are serious neurological and psychological damages suffered by the boy.
Expect a vigorous defense by Carnival.
