A lawsuit filed after the drowning of an 11-year-old boy at Lake Wanahoo has been settled for $300,000.
The parents of Bayden Martinez filed the suit in Saunders County after he died June 12, 2012 while fishing alone at a dam spillway near Wahoo. His leg apparently became caught in a concrete pipe because of the water's force and suction.
Under the settlement, the Lower Platte North Natural Resources District is responsible for $200,000 and Olsson Associates, the engineering firm that designed the dam and spillway, is responsible for $100,000.
