Wrongful death suit filed against now-closed Page Restaurant and Bar in Portsmouth
BRENTWOOD — David and Cheryl Krantz filed a suit in Rockingham County Superior Court accusing Page Restaurant and Bar of allowing an unsafe environment to exist.
The couple was at the now-closed restaurant with their son who suffered a fatal blow to the head by a patron upset over a spilled drink, according to the Union Leader.
The restaurant closed shortly after the incident on April 6, 2013.
Krantz had accidentally spilled a drink on patron Zachary O’Neill, of Dover, while they were on the dance floor earlier in the night, the suit said.
After the assault, Krantz returned to his Dover apartment, where he was found dead hours later.
O’Neill pleaded guilty to manslaughter in 2014 and is serving up to 22 years in prison.
