LOS ANGELES – In connection with the unintentional death of Los Angeles Police Department officer Houston Tipping that occurred in May while he was participating in a training exercise, the family’s legal representatives have decided to file a new claim against the city of Los Angeles.
Additionally, the attorneys have stated that they intend to exhibit fresh footage of the training that Tipping received.
According to the supplied medical report, Tipping had a head injury as a result of being “probably dropped.”
The Los Angeles Police Department asserts that Tipping was working as a bike teacher at the school when the incident occurred. The scenario that they were practicing involved wrestling with another cop. Tipping is said to have fallen while the demonstration was going on, which resulted in damage to his spinal cord, as stated by the department. Other policemen on the scene worked to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on Tipping and requested assistance from the Los Angeles Fire Department. After being transported, Tipping arrived at the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. Tipping succumbed to his wounds despite the efforts of the medical staff.
During the news conference that will take place at 2:00 p.m., additional information is anticipated to be shared.
