Parents file lawsuit against Little League after son’s bunk bed accident

In August 2022, Little Leaguer Easton Oliverson was rushed to the hospital.

The parents of 13-year-old Easton Oliverson are speaking out about a simple fix they say could have saved their son from a life-threatening accident at the Little League World Series last year.

In August 2022, Easton was part of the first team out of Utah to make it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. During the trip, the then-12-year-old fell from his bunk bed while sleeping in the league dormitory.

His parents, Nancy and Jace Oliverson, are speaking out for the first time since they filed a lawsuit against the league, telling “Good Morning America” the accident was caused by “gross neglect.”

“All we’ve been through and it was 100% preventable,” Nancy Oliverson said.
