IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - One of 13 Iowa football players hospitalized after a high-intensity workout in 2011 claims the university's negligence caused him physical and mental harm.
Former Hawkeye William Lowe filed a lawsuit Monday against the university. It says the team's coaches and trainers failed to properly supervise and monitor him during the workout and failed to offer prompt medical care after he and others reported severe pain.
The lawsuit says the team was negligent in ''developing and implementing a dangerous improper training program.''
Lowe and 12 others were diagnosed with exertional rhabdomyolysis in the days after a Jan. 20, 2011 offseason workout at the state of winter training. Lowe spent several days in the hospital after being diagnosed with acute renal failure.
He's seeking unspecified monetary damages for pain and suffering.
