The family of a teen who fell from the wheel well of a jet in a Boston suburb two years ago is suing Charlotte, Charlotte-Douglas International Airport and US Airways.

The family of 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale says negligence by the city, the airport and the airline caused the teen to fall from a Boeing 737 to his death.

Sure it would have been nice if security caught him, but they not under legal obligation to unless they saw him and let him do it. No security is 100%, and they did not guarantee this to the family before the incident. It doesn't matter if they chased him and he slipped past, or he slipped past undetected, it is not security's responsibility to take away then teenagers own personal responsibility not to do it in the first place.

Oh joy yet another BS lawsuit. If anything the city, airport, and airline should be suing the idiot's family for not preventing their idiot kid from killing himself. Ha it'd make about as much sense.

I don't think so obviously, but I do remember cases of buglers getting injured while in someone else's house and suing the owner (I don't know the outcome of those).
