Father Sues Universal Orlando After Adult Son Jumps From Aventura Hotel


A father is suing Universal Orlando Resort, Loews Corp., and several other organizations after his son committed suicide in 2019 by jumping from the roof-top bar, Bar 17 Bistro at Universal’s Aventura Hotel.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Alfred Bahna believes his 27-year-old son Matthew’s demise to be a wrongful death, accusing the Universal Orlando hotel’s employees of excessively serving his son alcohol while he was in an open-air rooftop bar that lacked sufficient barriers. Bahna filed the suit last week for more than $30,000 in Orange Circuit Court.

Bahna claims in the lawsuit that his son was “intoxicated to the extent that his normal faculties and judgment were substantially and significantly impaired,” claiming his son — who was 5’3″ — drank six tall drinks in only 90 minutes.
