After her child left the building alone and was hit by an automobile, a DC mother sued the charter school for $50,000,000.


A mother is suing a Washington, DC company for $50 million. When her nine-year-old son was hit by a vehicle and later died of his injuries, she enrolled him in a charter school.

Kaidyn Green, a small child, was hit by a car in December and as a result became paralyzed from the neck down.

The crash severely injured the child’s lungs, requiring months of resuscitation.

Kaidyn finally died in June of this year.

“Essentially we have a situation where a child died twice and was brought back once,” Green family attorney Keith Watters said at a press conference on Friday.

“For some reason, security and/or the school did not follow normal protocol in bringing the child to the reception,” Watters said, describing it as “gross negligence.”

The accident happened on the afternoon of December 10 when the fourth year student was told that his mother had to pick him up early from school.

Although his mother was waiting at the school reception, Kaidyn eventually left the building and crossed the road, whereupon he was hit by a car.

“It was a life-changing experience for our whole family, and we don’t want anyone to relive that,” Charisma Green’s aunt Kaidyn told WUSA, describing her nephew as “an energetic, fun boy who loved school.’

The Green family says they want to see safety changes made to schools so others don’t have to face the same tragedy.

“Our community continues to mourn the passing of Kaidyn and our hearts go out to his family and classmates who knew him so well,” KIPP DC School said in a statement. “Given the ongoing court case, we cannot comment further at this time.”

Kaidyn died a day after his family took him home, nearly six months after the accident.

He still needed medical supervision for up to 20 hours a day. The young man died after a tracheostomy tube fell and he suffocated.

For some reason, a supervising nurse who was supposed to be on call left early, leaving the child unattended.
