A family is suing three power companies and the city of Cleveland because a 12 year old girl was shocked and permanently disabled by downed power lines.
12-year old Gasia Thomas nearly died last November after Superstorm Sandy. She somehow touched wires down near E. 130th and Iroquois.
Lawyers write, Gasia suffered burns, a permanent brain injury, and even a "loss of limb."
Police radio tapes show a dispatcher had called First Energy to alert the company and even sent an officer to check the area.
The officer may have seen other downed lines because he radioed that he saw harmless downed phone lines, and he left.
He's still facing discipline.
