Gresham dad sues hammock maker over baby's death

   PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- An Oregon man whose 5-month-old son died last summer has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the maker of hammock-like baby beds.
   Jonathan Kuzma of suburban Gresham contends in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court that the bed made by Amby Baby USA of Minneapolis was defective and dangerous and led to the suffocation death of his son Matteo in August.
   The death of the Oregon infant and a 4-month-old in Georgia led to the Dec. 8 recall of about 24,000 Amby Baby Motion Beds.
   The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the side-to-side shifting or tilting of the hammock could cause an infant to roll and become trapped or wedged against the hammock's fabric or mattress pad, posing a suffocation risk to babies.
   Amby did not immediately respond to calls and e-mails from The Associated Press seeking comment on the recall and did not immediately respond to a voice mail message left after business hours Wednesday seeking comment on the lawsuit.

•Gresham dad sues hammock maker over baby's death

GRESHAM, Ore. -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 24,000 Amby Baby motion beds after two infants suffocated in the hammocks, including a Gresham baby.

The little boy from Gresham was five-months old when he died.

Now, parents have been warned to stop using the hammocks immediately and contact Amby Baby for a free repair kit.

The motion beds were sold between January 2003 and October 2009
