Alabama Airport Fatality Lawsuit Settled Before Trial

Five-Year-Old Child Was Fatally Injured During A Weather Event

The lawsuit stemming from the death of a five-year-old boy at an airshow at Huntsville International Airport in June, 2008, has been settled, according to court documents. The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

The suit stemmed from the death of five-year-old Josiah Miller, who was fatally injured when an air conditioning unit which was set up as part of a series of hospitality tents at the show fell on him after being picked up by a microburst which hit the airport. The show had officially been suspended a few minutes before the severe weather moved in.

The suit had charged the tent provider and installer All Needz Rental, as well as the air conditioner provider Aggreko LLC and two airport employees with responsibility for the child's death. The family had previously settled with Aggreko, according to a report appearing on the online Alabama news site AL.com.

A trial has been scheduled for February. A court order handed down last week by Circuit Judge Karen Hall indicated that the parties had settled the suit during mediation, and that they would be providing the court with settlement documents. The judge said they are required to produce the documents not later than 60 days after December 3.
