Columbia family files suit over girl's diving accident

HOWARD COUNTY

A 15-year-old Columbia girl and her parents are suing the Columbia Association for $5 million, charging that the organization all but ignored a 1988 diving accident in which the girl broke her neck.

The suit, filed in Howard County Circuit Court by Aziz and Tulin Saadi of the 5400 block of Lucky Penny Court, also charges that the association was negligent in its hiring of swim team coaches, who allegedly ordered their daughter, Serin, to dive into the shallow end of a pool.

The girl struck her head on the bottom of the pool when she dove in and collapsed several times in the water before being helped out, the parents charge. Afterward, the coaches allowed Serin to walk home alone and did not tell the family of her head injury, the suit claims. Since then, the suit said, the girl has had to undergo surgery and therapy.

Columbia family files suit over girl's diving accident

According to the suit, the coaches told Serin to dive into 3 feet of water and swim to the far end of the pool. But they failed to warn her about the "safest method to dive into shallow water," the parents charged.

The girl struck her head on the bottom of the pool when she dove in and collapsed several times in the water before being helped out, the parents charge. Afterward, the coaches allowed Serin to walk home alone and did not tell the family of her head injury, the suit claims.

Since then, the suit said, the girl has had to undergo surgery and therapy.
