Widow of Financial Trader Sues Southwest Airlines

The widow of a financial trader is suing Southwest Airlines alleging that the crew on her husband's flight last year didn't offer adequate medical attention when he collapsed in a lavatory. Kelly Ilczyszyn filed a death suit in Alameda County Superior Court, saying the Dallas-based airline treated her dying husband, Richard Ilczyszyn, as if he were causing a disturbance when he was found moaning and crying in the bathroom of a Sept. 16 flight 2014. Southwest Airlines said it responded 'appropriately and professionally' to the 'unfortunate medical event'. The airline said the crew on the plane 'attempted to reach the customer in an effort to provide assistance'. The suit asks for financial damages suffered by Kelly and her three children but does not list a specific dollar amount. The suit said Richard Ilczyszyn collapsed in the bathroom about 10 minutes before the plane was scheduled to land in Orange County. Members of the flight crew opened the door to find Ilczyszyn in distress while crying and moaning and proceeded to treat the incident as involving an improper disruption by a passenger instead of a medical emergency, the suit says. The plane continued to John Wayne Airport, where other passengers were removed before sheriff's deputies were called by the flight crew to deal with a passenger who had barricaded himself in the bathroom, according to suit.
