“During the evening decedent, Cory Barrron, entered a room in the upper deck of Progressive Field, which had a 5-story garbage chute which led directly to the basement level of the stadium,” the suit stated. “ The aforementioned room was supposed to be locked to prevent unintended access to the room by patrons attending events at the facility as as a basic security precaution.”***
The suit further stated the defendants knew the door had been broken, but had failed to repair or replace it.
The suit also said the defendants created “unsafe and dangerous conditions at the facility,” and also failed to provide proper security at the event.
