Sebastian Hizey, a 6-year-old boy, was killed at a Monster Truck show in Tacoma, Washington after debris flew into the stands, hitting him in the head in this wrongful death case.
According to an article from the Los Angeles Examiner, a red truck came apart while doing doughnuts during the freestyle competition of a Monster Jam show last week. The debris flew 30 to 50 feet over a safety barrier into the stands and also injured another spectator. The boy’s father issued a statement saying his son was hit in the head by a Frisbee-sized piece of metal, weighing between 7 and 12 pounds.
Spectators reported that it took a long time for medics to arrive and the show continued even after the two were hurt.
Officers serving as security at the event investigated the incident and did not find anything criminal.
