The family of a 9-year-old boy who fell into a coma after allegedly being thrown from a Bronx rooftop is suing the building's landlord, according to a published report.
Attorneys for Freddy Martin's family filed a multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit against Featherbed Holdings LLC, the owner of the building in Morris Heights where 17-year-old Casmine Aska is accused of throwing Martin off the roof earlier this month, the Daily News reports.
The family's attorney, Steven Hymowitz, told the News that the landlord is partially to blame for the crime because the building's roof was not properly monitored.
Contact information for Featherbed Holdings LLC was not immediately available.
Aska has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges and is currently being held on Rikers Island.
Martin remains hospitalized.
