South Windsor family may sue town after daughter's death

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

The family of a South Windsor teen who collapsed suddenly at a summer music program held at the high school may sue the town.

Lawyers representing the family of Hannah Patrie, 15, filed a notice of intent to sue the towns of south Windsor and Manchester earlier this month.

The family's attorney told Eyewitness News that they had to file the notice of intent within six months of Patrie's death. And they have not decided yet whether they will follow through with a lawsuit.

On June 29, officials said Patrie collapsed in the school auditorium during rehearsal, and later died at the hospital.

Her family's attorney said the first responders were not prepared to handle such an advanced medical call, and they believe more could have been done to save the teen's life.
