PARENTS SUING BOARDING SCHOOL – Claiming Wi Fi is Making Their Son Sick
A boarding school in central Massachusetts is being sued by parents who claim the school’s Wi-Fi signal is making their son sick.
The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports that the unidentified plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit against the Fay School in Southboro. The parents say their 12-year-old son has “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome” and has suffered headaches, nosebleeds and nausea since the school activated a stronger wireless signal in 2013.
The family is seeking $250,000 in damages and wants the school to switch to Ethernet cable Internet or turn down the Wi-Fi signal, according to The Telegram.
