Family Files Civil Suit Over Arkansas Campground Flood

April 5, 2012

Another wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the U.S. Forest Service over flash flooding at the Arkansas campground that killed 20 people in 2010.

The suit was filed last week by Gay Cunningham Moss and Swan Moss III. Their daughter, 7-year-old Gayble Moss, died in the flooding. Gayble had been camping with her friend, Kylee Sullivan, and Kylee’s family at the Albert Pike campground in June 2010.

Kylee and her grandmother also died in the floods.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that the lawsuit accuses the government of negligence, claiming the U.S. Forest Service did not adequately warn campers of the flood danger at the campground.

The Forest Service said it had not yet been served with a copy of the complaint.
