Carrier Accused of Negligence
filed federal lawsuit contends an airline passenger died in the
restroom during a commercial airline flight, but wasn't discovered
for more than two hours after the aircraft landed at Chicago O'Hare
Taisuke Matsuo, 66, apparently suffered a heart attack on an
April 13, 2005 American Airlines flight from Tokyo to Chicago on a
trip home to Indianapolis, according to the lawsuit filed by his
wife, Carolyn D. Watts.
After landing, passengers and flight crew disembarked, and the
aircraft was taken to another gate for cleaning. Crews then
discovered the bathroom was locked from the inside and discovered
Matsuo's body -- about two hours later.
American Airlines stands accused of negligence and damages of
about $150,000 are being sought. The airline does not comment on
pending litigation according to Tim Smith, a spokesman for American
in Fort Worth, TX.
