Widow Sues Helo Tour Company, Eurocopter, Over Hudson Accident

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.
