Student sues over injury from sliding down fire pole

December 22, 2005

BY STEVE PATTERSON Staff Reporter


It was a field trip to a fire station and students got to slide down the fire pole.

But the mother of one student says her daughter's feet and legs were injured when she hit the floor, and now they're suing for negligence.

Denise Troche filed the suit Wednesday against Our Lady of Victory Catholic School and the Chicago Fire Department, claiming they didn't take precautions before her daughter descended the fire pole.

The school at 4442 N. Laramie Ave. sent students to the firehouse at 4701 N. Milwaukee in January.

Even though teachers and fire officials were nearby, the lawsuit said they "failed to properly supervise" her daughter as she came down the fire pole.

There was no soft landing and no spotter provided, it adds, calling such actions "reckless disregard for her safety" that resulted in "permanent injuries."

The lawsuit says Troche's daughter "will be hindered and prevented from attending to her usual duties and affairs of life" because of the injuries she suffered.

The lawsuit does not mention specific injuries. Neither Troche nor her attorney, David Heyer, could be reached.

The Rev. Christopher Doering, pastor of the church, said he was aware of the incident, but didn't know specifics and had not seen the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

Not enough information to make a judgment. How old was she? What was the situation? Shouldn't they have had a spotter for young kids?

Hey...think about it....this could seriously affect her job as a stripper if she can no longer do a pole dance.
