The parents of twin toddlers who drowned in their Deerfield Beach apartment complex pool have filed a lawsuit against the property owners, alleging they were negligent in failing to secure the gate at the pool.
Andrew Yaffa said the tragic April 8 deaths should never have happened at Tivoli Park apartments in the 600 block of Siesta Key Circle.
“This was totally preventable,” Yaffa said. “Residents [who live there] said you just needed to push on the gate and it would open. Imagine a doorknob that didn’t work. It was there for a show. All you needed to do was push on the gate and it would open wide open.”
