The family of a Scott City boy who died during a dental procedure is filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

The suit filed on behalf of the family of three-year-old Abiel Zapata Valenzuela was filed yesterday, and the family is seeking in excess of 75-thousand-dollars from each defendant.

Valenzuela died during a procedure at Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry in west Wichita on July 6th.

The family’s attorney says medical records show there was inadequate patient ventilation and a compromised airway during the procedure.
