PA: Families of Girls Killed in Fire Sue Manufacturer of Hoverboard

Last March,  a tragic fire here in Harrisburg killed two girls (a two-year-old and a ten-year-old).  The fire allegedly occurred when a LayZBoard hoverboard overheated while it was charging.  The families are now suing the manufacturer and seeking more than $500,000 in damages.  A further tragedy occurred as a fireman was responding to the call; he was killed when a driver who was high ran a stop sign.  The proximate cause implications are exam-worthy.  The Tampa Bay Times has details.
