Injured rescuer sues family

By The Associated Press

Richard Cosmillo holds his grandson, Joey Cosmillo, who is profoundly disabled after nearly drowning in the family pool. One of Joey's rescuers is suing the family over injuries she suffered.

CASSELBERRY, Fla. — A police officer who slipped and injured a knee during a rescue call has sued the family that phoned 911 after their 1-year-old boy nearly drowned.

The child, Joey Cosmillo, now almost 23 months old, fell into the family pool in January. He was resuscitated but suffered severe brain damage and can't walk, talk or swallow. He lives in a nursing home and eats and breathes through tubes.

Police Sgt. Andrea Eichhorn alleges the boy's family left a puddle of water on the floor, causing her fall during the rescue effort. She broke a knee and missed two months of work.

Eichhorn's attorney, David Heil, said she has persistent knee pain and will likely develop arthritis. He said city benefits paid by workers' compensation and some disability checks helped with medical bills, but it wasn't enough.

"It's a situation where the Cosmillos have caused these problems, brought them on themselves, then tried to play the victim," Heil said.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

"The loss we've suffered, and she's seeking money?" said Richard Cosmillo, 69, the boy's grandfather who lived in the home with his wife and the boy's mother. "Of course there's going to be water in the house. He was sopping wet when we brought him in."

Eichhorn's suit named Cosmillo; his wife, Maggie, and the boy's mother, Angela Cosmillo, accusing them of negligence. They were careless, according to the suit, and allowed the home they shared to become unsafe.

Eichhorn's personnel file includes numerous commendations. The 12-year veteran has worked as a hostage negotiator and prostitution decoy, and wrestled razors away from a suicidal person.

Material from The Orlando Sentinel is included in this report.

And since some of you were looking for it.. the trailer for Tim Burton's rendition of Sweeney Todd. I'm very interested in hearing your opinion. :)

It's got Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp, and Helena Boham Carter, some new comers.. umm.. Mary Poppins.. Peter Pettigrew.. oh and Borat.

Tell me whatcha think? :)

I was flabbergasted the first time I heard about that case. Evidently, her fwerked knee was much more important than the kid and any potential damage the poor thing suffered from the near-drowning. My initial reaction was, "But, what...?" to the whole thing. Glad the case got dropped!

I think the cop is as much a fiend as the barber.

I think more so. ;)

I'm rather fond of good ol' Benjamin Barker.

I'd rather meet him in a dark alley.

I happen to work in Casselberry and I would expect the family to be suing the cop more than the reverse. A lot of the average people around here are very self-serving but the civil servants I've met at work are very nice. Though I meet more firefighters than cops.

That's ridiculous. Isn't the job of a police officer to put their lives on the line to help other people? Would she sue someone if she was shot trying to save them? *scoffs*


And thanks for posting the Sweeny video... i can't get it to work, though. :( Sometimes i hate having a yucky computer.

I figured everyone would say how awful that woman was, so I tried and tried to come up with something that justified what she was doing, only to fail.

What a bitch.

lol, i think it's going to be stunning visually. I'm not sold on Johnny's voice and I'm DEFINITELY not sold on Helena's acting. We'll see though. :)

You can tell it's Tim Burton from the makeup.

Well, in truth, that's how the makeup was in all the productions I've seen too. I think you can tell it's tim because of the vast contrast on the lighting, and the filming style.. and the cast. lol
