Relatives of Indiana man who died rescuing daughter from pond sue GM, apartment complex

Relatives of an Indianapolis man who died while rescuing his 3-year-old daughter from a car that rolled into a retention pond are suing General Motors.

Anthony Burgess Jr. drowned March 26 after his 2008 Pontiac G6 rolled into an apartment complex's retention pond. The 24-year-old Burgess pulled his daughter from the car, but he then drowned.

The wrongful death lawsuit contends General Motors was aware of the "dangerous and defective product it manufactured."
