Airlines continue to be in hot water!
The latest controversy uncovered on Tuesday involves a lawsuit against Delta after a passenger was stabbed by a stray needle when reaching into his seat pocket.
Gabriel Ybarra claims his finger was “bleeding profusely” after being pricked while searching for his wallet on a 2015 flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta, according to TMZ. He also adds “his life flashed in front of him.”
In addition to undergoing a year of tests, he was even prescribed meds to ensure he didn’t contract any diseases or viruses like HIV.
The lawsuit docs also describe how Gabriel’s prescriptions caused chronic dizziness, headaches, body aches, “explosive diarrhea,” and how he was unable to complete “his duties as a husband to his wife for months.”
No word from a Delta rep on their legal troubles, but a spokesman did say they were “dismayed by what this customer describes in the suit” and that “the safety and security of our customers and employees is always Delta’s top priority.”
We’ll let you know if there are any updates!
