The Insider reports:
A woman is suing Unifi Aviation after she reportedly witnessed one of the company’s employees fatally “ingested” into a Delta airplane’s engine, according to documents viewed by Insider.
The suit says passenger Mackenzie Hill was returning to San Antonio, Texas, from Los Angeles on June 23. Hill was in California “for a church conference and graduation ceremony,” having just completed a two-year program for “equipping women for ministry,” per the suit.
Hill says she noticed the employee, identified as 27-year-old David Renner, who worked for Unifi and offered ground handling operations support for Delta Air Lines, “coming uncomfortably close” to the plane as it was taxiing to the gate around 10:25 p.m. Renner’s estate is also listed as a defendant in the lawsuit.
Read the full article. Hill, who says she suffers from “flashbacks and PTSD,” claims the airline knew about Renner’s mental state. Her suit cites “alarming” social media posts made by Renner in 2018. My most recent report on the incident is here.
