A New Providence man has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Connecticut in connection with the 2012 death of his young son.

Alexander Wu, 8, was playing in the hallway of his grandmother’s apartment building in Stamford, Conn. when the screen on the window where he was playing gave way. The boy fell six stories to his death, according to an article on ctpost.com.

Alexander’s father, Zhongzin Jason of New Providence, filed the lawsuit in Stamford in February. His attorneys filed the lawsuit in State Superior Court, the ctpost.com article said.

Rippowam Manor, the senior housing complex where the boy was playing and where his grandmother lived, is owned by the Stamford Housing Authority, ctpost.com said. The lawsuit charges both the housing authority and housing complex with negligence and carelessness. 

The lawsuit seeks more than $ 15,000 in damages, the ctpost.com report said.
