Little v. City of Bessemer et al;
In the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Bessemer Division;

George Stokes, IV (six years old at the time of his death) was playing on a construction site which was intended to be a park. This construction site was well known as a place where children gathered and played, but despite this no warning signs were ever posted regarding the site. The site was/is in a residential community. During the construction a huge tree was uprooted and soon thereafter it started to rain, creating an artificial pool of water in the area where the tree stood over four feet deep. Master Stokes, along with a large group of children, were playing near this pond when George, assuming the pond was a mud puddle, drove his bike in and drowned.
