The plaintiff sued the YMCA for unspecified damages, alleging that it failed to properly supervise the sauna and that employees might have removed or modified the sauna’s timers.
The plaintiff recently accepted a payment from the YMCA’s insurance provider. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
The plaintiff’s husband died Jan. 21, 2007, two days after he was found in the sauna. A YMCA official said, “Their insurance company found no problems with the sauna.”
