Parents suing Iowa City school

CORALVILLE (KWWL) -- Coralville parents are suing the Iowa City school district over a playground incident 2 years ago.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in Johnson County.

The couple accuses Kyle Epsteen -- now retired from Kirkwood Elementary -- of throwing their son into the air and not catching him.

The 7-year-old suffered a broken wrist, according to the suit.

The parents claim the district and Epsteen are liable for failing to keep students safe and not notifying them until the end of the day.

The district isn't commenting.
