Abel Limones collapsed and passed out during his high school soccer game. Limones’s coach yelled out for an automated external defibrillator (AED). The school had an AED on site, but it was never retrieved. Florida law required public schools to have an AED and trained employees on site for athletic events. Limones was eventually revived by Emergency Medical Service (EMS) using its own AED, but not until Limones had suffered severe brain damage. Limones’s parents (plaintiffs) brought a negligence suit against Limones’s school district, the School District of Lee County (defendant). The trial court granted the school district summary judgment. The appellate court affirmed after finding that although the school district had a duty of reasonable care to supervise its students and prevent the aggravation of injuries to student athletes, this duty did not require the school district to provide, diagnose a need for, and use the AED. Limones’s parents appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.
