Carmel Valley Couple Suing Hyatt For Wrongful Death of Toddler
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – In a world where safety and security are paramount, especially during family vacations, the tragic incident involving the Carter family serves as a stark reminder of the unforeseen dangers that can lurk in seemingly safe environments. This article delves into the heart-wrenching story of the Carter family, whose vacation turned into a nightmare, and examines the legal implications of this tragic event.
On October 11, 2021, James Carter and Anastasia Duboshina experienced every parent’s worst nightmare during their stay at the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. Their 1-year-old son, Nico Carter, tragically fell to his death from a ninth-floor balcony where a pane of protective glass was missing. This horrifying incident occurred just days before Nico was to celebrate his second birthday, transforming a family vacation into an unimaginable tragedy.

This incident has led to a federal wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Carters against Hyatt Hotels Corporation and related entities. The lawsuit alleges wrongful death, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and deception by Hyatt in misrepresenting the safety standards of their Puerto Vallarta resort. It highlights a critical issue in the hospitality industry: the safety and security measures in place, especially in areas accessible to children.
The absence of the safety glass pane and the lack of any warning signs or restricted access to the balcony area are central to the lawsuit. This case raises significant questions about the accountability of hotel operators in ensuring the safety of their guests and the standards of care expected in the hospitality industry.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children ages 0 to 19. Every day, about 8,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms for fall-related injuries. This statistic underscores the importance of stringent safety measures and the need for constant vigilance in environments frequented by children.
