SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An Iowa City woman has sued the Neighborhood Centers of Johnson and the Iowa City School District for allegedly pushing her son into a pole while pushing him on a tire-swing.

Bambi Cox asserted that employees of the School District should have known the swing posed a danger to students and Neighborhood Center workers should have recognized the danger of pushing her son too high, court documents show.

According to the lawsuit, Jason Allen was being pushed on a tire swing at Twain Elementary on May 1, 2009, when he suffered “severe injuries and damages” after striking his head on the pole.

Cox has asked for judgment against the School District and the Neighborhood Center in a reasonable amount sufficient to fairly compensate her.
