A man whose 5-month-old son died last summer has filed a $5 million wrongful death lawsuit against the maker of hammock-like baby beds. The wrongful death lawsuit contends that the bed, made by Amby Baby USA of Minneapolis, was a defective product and a dangerous product. The wrongful death lawsuit also alleges that the hammock led to the suffocation death of his son in August. The death of the infant and a 4 month old led to the December 8 recall of about 24,000 Amby Baby Motion Beds. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) has stated that the side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock could cause an infant to roll and become trapped or wedged among the hammock’s fabric or mattress pad, posing a suffocation risk to babies.
