According to the Courthouse News Service in Las Vegas, B&B’s Hunter Tylo has filed a lawsuit against a social worker she blames for her son, Mickey’s tragic drowning death from 2007. This stems from Shanna Downing of Horizon Family Therapy & Wellness advising her son to stop taking his seizure medication, in which caused the young man to have a seizure and drown in the family pool.
Downing allegedly told the Tylo family that their son’s seizures were “due to the stress he was experiencing due to his parents break-up,” and “once the stress was eliminated… his seizures would disappear,” according to the lawsuit filed in Clark County Court. ”That the care, advice and treatment rendered … caused (Michael’s) seizures to continue and lead to his untimely death,” the lawsuit states.
