A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed over the drowning of Glee actor Naya Rivera, who died in July while boating with her four-year-old son on a lake in California.

The suit was filed on Tuesday against Ventura County and managers of Lake Piru over her accidental death on 8 July at the lake north-west of Los Angeles. It was filed on behalf of her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, by Ryan Dorsey — Rivera’s ex-husband and the boy’s father and guardian — and also on behalf of her estate.

Last week, Google made public its data on search trends related to Covid-19 symptoms.

It also includes the searchers’ country and region.

Ahead of ElectionDay, millions of Americans turned to Google for information about the candidates, issues, and voting, and on Tuesday, Google's search trends offered a glimpse into the country's mood and top priorities.

While the top search globally was unsurprising "election," and the top trending search was "live election results," Americans also looked for ways to cope with uncertainty around the election, as a winner likely won't be declared for at least several days as states tally mail-in ballots.
