Federal Suit Seeks $1.3 Million+ In Damages
The widow of the pilot involved in
a mid-air collision in which 9 people lost their lives has filed a
wrongful death suit in federal court in Philadelphia, seeking more
than $1.3 million in damages for the loss of her husband.
The Associated Press reports that Pamela Altman, the widow of
Steve Altman, who was flying the airplane which collided with a
sightseeing helicopter on August 8th, is suing tour company Liberty
Helicopters, Meridian Consulting I, which owned the helicopter, and
American Eurocopter. The suit claims the tour company and owner
have a "horrid history of accidents", and that Eurocopter did not
equip the aircraft with sufficient safety equipment.
Altman's brother and nephew were also killed in the accident, as
well as the helicopter pilot and five Italian tourists.
