SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — A Spokane woman has filed a lawsuit against a northern Idaho resort contending she suffered severe burns and disfigurement when a mortar shell firework struck her in the face during a Fourth of July display.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports in a story on Tuesday that Alivia Norwood filed the lawsuit Sept. 11 against Grandview Resort at Priest Lake and is seeking in excess of $10,000.
A Bonner County emergency response team reported that Norwood suffered third-degree burns to the side of her face.
She was evacuated from the area by helicopter.
The lawsuit also contends that the resort provided alcohol to individuals it knew or should have known were intoxicated but allowed to take part in the fireworks display.
