Mother of Student Deceased Wrestler Sues Hospital

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The mother of a paralyzed 16-year-old high school wrestler has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a Wyoming hospital that treated him.

The lawsuit from Melissa Plumley alleges Cheyenne Regional Medical Center didn’t monitor Isaac Salas properly and discharged him even though he was having difficulty breathing.

The Associated Press reports the lawsuit filed last week seeks undisclosed damages for Salas’ death, and for medical and funeral expenses.

Hospital officials declined to comment to the newspaper, saying they don’t comment on pending litigation.

Salas died on September 2011. The lawsuit says he was taken to the hospital because he was having problems with his catheter.

Salas was at wrestling practice November 2010 at Cheyenne South High School when he broke two vertebrae in his neck, leaving him paralyzed.
