Michael Miller of the Press of Atlantic City is reporting that Tracy Hottenstein’s parents will be allowed to sue emergency workers connected to the death of their daughter in 2009.
“A federal judge will let two parents pursue claims against emergency workers who allegedly failed to provide life-saving help to their daughter, Tracy Hottenstein, the morning she died.”
Hottenstein, who lived in Conshohocken, mysteriously died during the Polar Bear Plunge in Sea Isle City on February 15, 2009. Hottenstein was out with friends and was shown on video tape to have left a bar at 2:15 a.m. with a male friend. Her body was found early the next morning. An autopsy showed she died from hypothermia and her parents claim that their daughter may have still been alive when found and that the emergency responders should have tried to revive her.
