The lawsuit alleges that the April 1 fire started when a flying board purchased from the large retailer in 2018 caught fire in their 10-year-old daughter’s room.

The pair argue that Jetson and Walmart knew or should have known that the skateboard had an “unreasonably flawed and dangerous design”.

The lawsuit alleges that despite this alleged oversight, Jetson and Walmart continued to market, sell, and advertise the hoverboard.

The lawsuit comes after the Hellertown, Pennsylvania, fire department asserted that the house fire was “electrical in nature,” but did not specify the cause.

Mother Jennifer managed to escape through her bedroom window on the first floor while Father Damien was in a separate garage outside.

According to the lawsuit, Damien tried to enter the house and rescue the two girls, but tragically failed.

“We are convinced based on our careful and thorough investigation that the skateboard is to blame.”

“We expect our suppliers to provide safe, high-quality products that meet all applicable laws and regulations.

“We will respond with the court as appropriate after we are notified of the complaint.”
