Second Lawsuit Filed in Little Panda Collapse

One of the girls who called 9-1-1 during the Little Panda roof collapse is now suing the restaurant. Chelsi Chestnutt was buried underneath the debris when she and a friend called 9-1-1 on March 20, 2006. Chestnutt is the second person to file suit over the incident. She claims the owner and its partner failed to keep the building in a safe condition.

A similar suit was filed in March by the family of Daniel Perez. He was repairing an air conditioner and suffered severe head injuries in the collapse. His suit claims negligence against the building owner, its general partner and their parent corporation.

The collapse injured ten people and killed 23-year-old Tara Wilson of New Mexico.
