Old Man Dies After Being Forced To Clean Walgreens Bathroom
Maria Elizarraras, the widow of an elderly Florida man, has sued an Orlando Walgreens store, accusing them of allegedly holding her husband captive until he cleaned the store’s dirty bathroom.
The widow claims that the humiliation of cleaning the disgusting bathroom caused her late husband emotional distress so severe that it killed him reports AJC:
The employees insisted the 69-year-old man clean the facility because, “You left a mess, (expletive) all over the bathroom,” the suit says.
For 20 minutes, Fernando was threatened and forced to clean and mop the bathroom before he was allowed to leave the store, his wife claims in the suit.
Maria Elizarraras was suing Walgreen for an undetermined amount, but documents reveal she is willing to settle the lawsuit for $500K.
The incident caused Fernando to be “humiliated, disgraced and injured in his feelings, emotionally and mentally,” the lawsuit says.
The emotional distress caused by the situation was so severe that it “resulted in the death of Fernando,” the suit says.The lawsuit does not say how much time passed between the incident and Fernando’s death.
