Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed in Hotel Drowning

Last year 4-year-old Tyler Houtakker drowned at the Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort in Lake Delton. Tyler’s parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming Wilderness Hotel employees were negligent by failing to notice Tyler’s distress in a wave pool that wasn’t active, and for failing to rescue him. According to a Lake Delton Police Department report, in June of 2007, after Tyler was seen floating face down in the pool by a lifeguard, a citizen was asked a minute or two later to bring Tyler out of the water where lifeguards and security personnel tried to resuscitate him.
