Man sues kayak rental company after falling in Tampa Bay, allegedly catching flesh-eating bacteria

https://buff.ly/3C5VEgX

State: Florida

The plaintiff rented a kayak from the defendant on Tampa Bay. The seat was not working so an attendant adjusted the seat. After paddling away, the seat failed and the man fell out of the kayak.

He obviously could not re-enter the kayak, so he swam to the put in and tied up the kayak and then swam around looking for an exit. While attempting to get out of the water, he scraped his leg.

He went back to the rental agency and demanded a refund. The agency was dumb enough not to return his money. Mistake
2.

The next day the man developed flesh-eating bacteria and went to the hospital.

Mistake 1 is not having a release (or one that is reported in the article)

Why Is This Interesting?

Based on the article the lawsuit sounds like an admiralty case based on a bad boat charter.

Robert Williams and Ailey Penningroth filed a complaint on September 22 in Hillsborough County Circuit Court against Bay Breeze Paddle Adventures LLC (BBPA) d/b/a Tampa Bay Sup for negligence, breach of charter and loss of consortium.
