A half million dollar settlement has been awarded to the family of a man who drowned after falling into a manhole in Syracuse.

Brandon Closure died three years ago while helping a driver push his car through waist high water on East Fayette Street.

His family filed a lawsuit, saying the city should have known the area was prone to flash flooding.
