SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The family of a toddler who died from his injuries suffered while visited a Scottsdale fire station has retained a lawyer.
According to a release from the city, the boy, who was less than 2 years old, was injured by a bay door at Fire Station 601 on Saturday, Feb. 3. He was later pronounced dead at Phoenix Children's Hospital.
A family member said the boy was visiting his uncle at the fire station.
According to the notice of representation sent by the family's attorney on Tuesday, the boy's parents are requesting an expert to inspect the fire station in the investigation of their son's death.
The letter, sent to Scottsdale city attorney Bruce Washburn and fire chief Tom Shannon, requests that all information — including surveillance or other video, repair logs, maintenance records and records of people at the station that day — be preserved for the investigation.
The city of Scottsdale confirmed it has been contacted by legal counsel representing the child's family and is therefore limiting its statement on the matter.
