Families of kids burned by acid file lawsuit

August 27, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The 10 and 11-year-old victims are both undergoing skin graft surgery.

Lawyers for the families say a worker hired by the defendants left a container of sulfuric acid on the porch several months before the incident on Tuesday.

The families say they are not filing suit against a 13-year-old boy accused of throwing the acid. They say it is not clear if acid was thrown or if it spilled off the porch.
