Wrongful death suit filed in fatal boating crash

A wrongful death lawsuit is filed claiming a northwest suburban man and woman are responsible for the boating death of a 10-year-old boy.

The lawsuit seeks more than $50,000 from David Hatyina and Renee Melbourn of Bartlett, claiming the family of Tony Borcia suffered emotional distress from the youngster's death last July.

Police say the Libertyville boy was run over by a boat operated by Hatyina.

The lawsuit says Melbourn assisted with the financial care and maintenance of the boat.

No comment so far from lawyers for Melbourn and Hatyina.
