A Missouri jury recommended that AmerenUE electric company pay the families of three teenagers involved in an electrical accident three years ago for a combined $2.3 million.
On March 18, 2006, Nic Harbison, then 16, Morgan Milfeld and Tim Fitzpatrick, both then 15, and Joshua McClure, then 18, jumped into Spring Lake. Shortly after hitting the water, the teens became immoblized by an electric current.
Nic Harbison drowned, the others were resucitated.
Harbison’s father, Jerry Harbison, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against AmerenUE the electric company.
