Officer Drops Suit, Placed On Leave
Woman Broke Knee After Slipping On Puddle
CASSELBERRY, Fla. — A police sergeant on Thursday dropped her lawsuit against a family that was filed after she slipped and fell at their home during a 911 call, and she was placed on leave by the Casselberry Police Department.
Sgt. Andrea Eichhorn, a 12-year department veteran, was removed from duty with pay while the department reviews the incident.
A 1-year-old boy, Joey Cosmillo, nearly drowned Jan. 9, and there was water on the floor at the home of the boy’s family. Eichhorn slid, broke her knee and missed two months of work. She said the boy’s family is guilty of negligence.
Eichhorn’s attorney, David Heil, sent a fax to Local 6 News that stated Eichhorn said it was in the best interest of herself and her family, friends and the Casselberry Police Department to dismiss the lawsuit.
“It doesn’t mean anything because you can’t take anything more away from us than what has been taken,” grandmother Maggie Cosmillo said in reference to her grandson’s condition.
Joey suffered brain damage and can no longer walk, talk or swallow. He lives in a nursing home and eats and breathes through tubes.
The boy’s grandmother said she hopes some good can come out of the attention the incident has garnered through the lawsuit.
“I just want someone to step forward (and) help this little boy. Let’s give him the best that he deserves,” Maggie Cosmillo said.
The lawsuit was filed against the advice of the Casselberry police chief. Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
