LOS ANGELES (AP) - A woman whose 2-year-old son fell to his death following a Los Angeles Lakers game says she put him on a ledge to take a photo of him.
City News Service reports Monday that Hoia Mi Nguyen told defense attorneys in a deposition that she wanted to capture the moment of baby Lucas Tang's attendance at the Nov. 21, 2010 game.
The baby died after falling 50 feet from a luxury box. Nguyen is suing the managers of Staples Center for wrongful death and negligence.
Nguyen said she wasn't concerned when perching her baby on the ledge because fans typically sit, stand or climb on it.
L.A. Arena Co. attorneys are asking the judge to throw out the case in a hearing Thursday.
