PHOENIX - A Phoenix lawsuit was filed earlier this month by the three minor children of a man whose suicide was broadcast by Fox News Channel last year.
The children, ages 9, 13 and 15, claim the footage of their father’s suicide has caused them to suffer emotional distress, reported ABC News.
ABC15 reported on the high-speed chase on Sept. 28, 2012 that resulted in the suspect getting out of the vehicle and shooting himself in the Tonopah area.
According to the suit, there were rumors around the children’s schools that an unnamed man’s suicide was circulating the internet.
It was not until the children went home and watched the video that they realized they were watching their father's death.
Both Fox News and anchor Shepard Smith apologized for the broadcast, claiming its airing was the result of human error.
Romero, 32, shot himself in the head after allegedly carjacking a vehicle, resulting in a high speed chase along westbound Interstate 10.
