At first, Bill and Kristi Anderson felt numb after learning that their 19-year-old son was found frozen to death in southeast Minneapolis the morning after celebrating the end of his first semester of college. But later, when they brought themselves to view photos of the scene and review reports from paramedics, their questions began to pile up. Now the Andersons are suing those first responders for negligence, alleging that they failed to deliver appropriate care for Jake in the moments after he was first found along the Mississippi River, still clad in the Santa cap he wore to an ugly sweater party in December 2013.
