There has been an Illinois wrongful death lawsuit filed regarding the death of a woman who died after being struck by a concrete gargoyle that fell from a downtown Chicago church.
The fatal accident happened on September 4, 2014, as the woman, Sarah Bean, 34, was waiting to cross the street beside the church. The church, Second Presbyterian Church of Chicago, is located at 1936 S. Michigan Avenue.
An excerpt from the September 9, 2014 NBC Chicago article titled “Lawsuit Filed In Death of Woman Killed By Falling Church Facade“:
A 2011 structural engineering report ordered by the city found problems that needed to be fixed, but no “imminently hazardous conditions” at the historic South Loop church.
Second Presbyterian Church subsequently passed city inspections early in 2012 and again in March, 2013, but it had not been inspected yet this year, according to records.
Additional details and possible updates concerning this Illinois wrongful death lawsuit can be seen in the NBC Chicago article mentioned above, as well as the September 8 myfoxchicago.com article titled “Lawsuit filed in death of woman killed by falling church gargoyle.”
