Every year, thousands of visitors visit Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California seeking fresh air and exercise. For most, the experience is full of excellent hiking and breathtaking vistas. For a pair of Red Bluff parents, however, a family outing turned into a nightmare, leading to the death of their 9-year-old son.
Now, the parents have filed a premises liability suit against the park, claiming that administrators failed to maintain their trails to an acceptable level of safety. Now, both parties are locked in a legal debate that will determine whether the park service was responsible for the conditions that led to the boy's death.
