(Duluth, MN) -- A Georgia couple is suing an energy company over a hot manhole cover. The lawsuit claims the couple was visiting Duluth, Minnesota, in August of 2011 when their two-year-old son tripped and fell on a scalding hot manhole cover. The boy suffered second-degree burns above the ankle. The couple is seeking more than 50-thousand dollars from the company that operates the city's steam plant. An attorney for the couple says he expects the case to go to trial.
