The parents of a Texas child are suing Apple after they say an Amber Alert that played while the child was wearing AirPods damaged his ear.


Carlos Gordoa and Ariani Reyes, the parents of the boy identified as “B.G.,” said their child was watching Netflix on his iPhone with AirPods connected at a “low volume” when the Amber Alert went off, according to their legal complaint.


The volume of the alert “tore apart B.G.’s ear drum, damaged his cochlea and caused significant injuries to B.G’s hearing,” court documents alleged.


The complaint added that the boy “suffered sudden and permanent hearing loss in his right ear” in addition to other injuries like dizziness, vertigo, nausea and tinnitus.
