Kansas insurance company claim paid out after child knocks over $132,000 statue

The child’s parents were required to pay for the broken artwork, but their insurer paid most.

The Kansas insurance company has covered the parents of a boy who knocked over a statue worth $132,000.

The video of the boy toppling the artwork went viral shortly after the incident happened.

The video was used as evidence against the boy and the parents were required to cover the cost of the broken artwork. That said, their Kansas insurance company came through with a payment of $107,000 for the damage caused by the child.

The incident occurred at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas. The video revealed that on May 18, 2018, there were two kids playing around the sculpture. At one point, one of the two children decided to try to hug the statue. The result was that the artwork was toppled onto the floor, where it broke.

At the time, the child’s parents were reportedly in another room. They had been attending a wedding reception at the community center when the boy knocked over the sculpture.
