The Indianapolis Star reported that a bank teller filed a suit against Huntington Bank claiming the bank was negligent for the death of her twin children.
The woman, who filed the Indiana wrongful death suit, was a teller at the bank when she was shot in the abdomen by a robber. She was approximately six months pregnant with twins at the time of the shooting, and went into labor two days later. One twin was stillborn and the other died several hours after birth.
The Indianapolis wrongful death suit claims the bank was negligent in that it provided only basic robbery training, lacked security officers, and failed to install bulletproof glass.
The suit also seeks damages under Indiana’s Child Wrongful Death Act.
