Boeing and AmSafe Face Lawsuit Filed by Family of Worker for Fatally Injury on Replacing Seat-Belt Air Bag

Boeing and AmSafe have been sued by the family of the worker who was fatally injured when a seat-belt air bag he was replacing on a 777 exploded in November. The accident occurred on a 777 parked on the flight line at Boeing's Everett factory, when workers for two contractors were called to deal with a seat-belt air bag that had discharged for no apparent reason. Kenneth Otto suffered massive head injuries when the replacement unit he was installing inflated explosively. He died almost a month later at Harborview Medical Center. Also suing Boeing and AmSafe is Christopher Gee, who was assisting Otto and suffered physical and emotional injuries, according to the lawsuit. Seat-belt air bags are typically installed only in the lap belts of business-class seats that can lie flat and are angled to face an aisle, or in seats facing a bulkhead wall or another hard surface. The suit filed in King County Superior Court alleges that the plane's buyer, Singapore Airlines, discovered a discharged air bag in one of the business-class seats as it was preparing to take delivery of the jet. Neither Boeing nor AmSafe conducted an examination to find what caused the malfunction, which later was traced to a short circuit in the wires controlling the device, according to the suit. Boeing asked Jamco America, the company that usually installs the 777 air bags at its nearby airplane-seat factory, to replace or repair the device on the plane. Otto, 49 at the time of the accident, was a Jamco employee; Gee, 25, worked for Vartan Aviation Group, which works on Boeing airplane interiors. The suit claims the device was defective, and that neither Boeing nor AmSafe had developed procedures for replacing the seat-belt air bag on the plane.
