Chicago families sue after a case of mistaken identity allowed a man to be taken off life support.
Two Chicago families have sued the city and a hospital after an injured patient was incorrectly identified, and people who did not know him were given the decision to take him off life support.

The plaintiffs are seeking more than $50,000 from each defendant. Mercy Hospital declined to comment on Thursday. A spokesperson for the City of Chicago and Chicago police did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.
