OXON HILL, Md. (FOX 5 DC) — One year after Zynae Green received a serious electric shock at MGM National Harbor, law enforcement has not released any updates into the criminal probe of the incident.
Prince George's County Police and the FBI have been investigating after a series of electrical failures and poor oversight by the county's inspections department caused the shock last June.
The shock left Green in a nearly vegetative state. She is unable to walk and talk and demands constant care.
Green's family is suing MGM and its contractors and the litigation is ongoing.
Since the incident, MGM disconnected the lights on the handrailings that shocked Green. Those lights remain off.
In a statement to FOX 5, a spokeswoman for MGM said, “It has been a year, but a day does not go by that we do not think of the Green family. What happened was a tragic accident and we hope Zynae’s condition improves.”
MGM says the property is safe and it has been subject to ongoing auditing by the county's inspections department.
The Green family attorneys were unavailable for comment Wednesday.
