Family Sues Hotel After 5-Year-Old Boy’s Head Was Crushed By Rotating Restaurant

A 5-year-old boy was trapped inside a rotating Atlanta restaurant and killed back in April. Now, his parents have filed a lawsuit against the 73-story hotel and restaurant where he died.

Charlie Holt’s head was caught in a 5-inch gap between a piece of furniture and wall while the floor of the restaurant, Sun Dial, rotated, the Charlotte Observer reported. Marriott International, Inc. owns the Westin Peachtree Hotel where Sun Dial is located, and they are all named in the suit.

The boy’s parents, Michael and Rebecca Holt, are accusing the companies of negligence for failing to address a “longstanding safety hazard.” It argues that there were no protections to stop children from getting trapped.

A Rockland County, New York woman was sentenced to three months in jail for drug possession after a Facebook Live video showed her and friends partying in a posh Gramercy Park hotel.
