According to a recent filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District, Melissa Arzu and his son Kevin Greenidge traveled from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, to Miami on June 4, 2022, when the teenager suffered medical trauma and became unconscious, the lawsuit filed from New York.

The lawsuit says Greenidge’s resulting death was “caused wholly and solely by reason of the carelessness, recklessness, and negligence of the defendant AMERICAN, its respective agents, servants and/or employees in failing to maintain an automatic external defibrillator (AED) on board the subject flight” and “failing to ensure that the AED and its mobile battery pack were fully and properly charged.”

It also accuses American Airlines of “failing to train its employees with basic resuscitation technique” and “causing, permitting, and allowing the mobile battery pack to drain down to no power thereby causing the AED to stop working.”
