SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — A Washington state woman has filed a lawsuit against a northern Idaho resort contending she suffered severe burns and disfigurement when a mortar shell firework struck her in the face during a Fourth of July display.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports in a story Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1wJGyXt) that Alivia Norwood of Spokane filed the lawsuit Sept. 11 against Grandview Resort at Priest Lake. She is seeking in excess of $10,000.
A Bonner County emergency response team reported Norwood suffered third-degree burns to the side of her face in the accident this summer. She was evacuated from the area by helicopter.
The lawsuit also contends the resort provided alcohol to individuals it knew or should have known were intoxicated but allowed to take part in the fireworks display.
The resort declined to comment Tuesday.
