The family of a boy who sustained severe burns after falling into a Huntington Beach fire pit has sued the city, according to the Orange County Register.

Six-year-old Seth Richardson fell backward into the smoldering fire pit at Huntington City Beach about 6 p.m. April 17 while flying a kite, attorney Rob Gibson said in August.

The family filed a claim against the city Aug. 10 asking for $500,000. The lawsuit was filed in Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 15, according to the Register.
