KATY (Covering Katy News) – A lawsuit has been filed in connection with the drowning death of a 6-year-old boy in Katy.  The boy died on May 5, 2019 at the Kings Crossing community pool located at pool located at 24999 Ceremonial Lane. It is near Katy Hockley Cut Off Road and Stockdick School Road.

The suit names The Community Association of Kings Crossing and Pulte Homes as defendants.

“Jocelyn Kang, a Houston Police Department Officer and mother of two, took her children to the community swimming pool at King Crossing in Katy, Texas. The pool and the surrounding area were overcrowded due to people celebrating Cinco De Mayo,” said a statement from the law firm representing Kang.

Kang claims that the lifeguards on duty did not have control of the crowd, nor were they enforcing maximum occupancy rules. Her attorney’s also claim the pool and surrounding area did not have visible warning signs regarding maximum occupancy.

Mrs. Kang’s oldest son, Ga Ram, drowned in the pool.

“A lifeguard was sitting a mere ten feet away from Ga Ram as he struggled for his life. Eventually, a second lifeguard saw Ga Ram in the crowded pool and pulled him out of the water,” the attorney’s statement said.

Ga Ram was then transported to Texas Children’sHospital where he later died due to his injuries.

The press release did not indicate the amount that the plaintiff was seeking.
