Family to sue after man killed in Wood Dale tent collapse
WOOD DALE, Ill. — The death of a father during the storm that hit Wood Dale is leading to a lawsuit.
This is a picture of Steven Nincic, with one of his two children, at the Wood Dale ‘Prairie Fest’ on Sunday.
It happened just minutes before a powerful storm tore through the area.
Nincic and his family were under a tent, which collapsed and killed him.
Twenty other people were injured.
Now the family’s attorney says they’ll file a lawsuit today.
Workers had been removing the tent and other materials from the festival all day Monday.
Officials in wood dale say the tent had an electrical inspection, but not a structural one.
