re: Ailing 425 Pound Woman Dies After Being Refused Boarding From Three Airlines


Even though she paid for two seats she would have sat in one and the over flow filling the second, is an unsafe situation. Anyone around her could have been needlessly hurt during any routine emergency. Those seats are not made for 425 lbs it would have broke loose or in half and she would have been everywhere. kinda like taking a water bed frame apart with water still in the mattress. theres no escaping it, it filles the room. The airline did the right thing. A boat would have been a better solution to her travel desires......A big Boat.

So you are you also for outlawing smoking and drinking? You might also want to consider genetics testing and aborting all fetuses that will cost more than "normal" babies. We would also need to kill off the older population since most healthcare $$$ are spent in the final years of life, all cancer patients and those who require drastic life-saving measures. Assuming that they are unable to pay for themselves out of pocket.

It's a moot point anyway since she died.

I'm late, so:
What did she die of?

prompting legal action from her family.

What possible legal recourse could these people have?

little to none, but believe it or not, the airlines are so PR conscious, that they'll end up paying something just to make it go away

apparently being fat is REALLY unhealthy....who knew? But it was diabetes and various other things, I think. And she refused to see doctors in Hungary.

No, nor am I for outlawing eating. Big difference. I AM for regulating smoking and drinking , same as eating. Oh by the way, we DO regulate drinking and smoking, but not eating, well not yet anyway.

The rest of your nonsense, is just that - nonsense , as those aren't CHOICES. That's like suggesting that if I punish my kid speeding and wrecking his car I should also punish him if someone runs into his unattended vehicle in a parking lot, because after all either incident will cost me money.

True, but they do negatively impact what YOU are paying for health insurance, assuming that the risk is spread evenly among people. So, all you really want is government regulation of private lives? I can see how that will end well.
Will you demand condom use by all to help stem STD's? What about pregnancy out of wedlock? Will you demand marriage and that the couple for everything themselves or will you advocate for removing those babies from the homes and giving them to more responsible people?

Yep. To prove the airlines had any fault for her death, it will have to be proven that she would not have died but for the airlines refusing to let her fly. And they can't do that-because there are hospitals all over Europe.
why does the suit have to be wrongful death? What about discrimination? What about not honoring their commitment when the ticket was purchased? It's wrong to let someone fly somewhere and just leave them.

have you read the entire thread? It's her fault since she's fat. But now that she's dead, it doesn't really matter anyway. And BTHog thinks we should make any BMI over 40 illegal.

In an imperfect world , we can and should only do so much. I'm sorry, if you're a child who can't figure out that 60% body fat is unhealthy, then yes daddy government should say something; just the same as if you're an idiot and can't figure out that driving while intoxicated is dangerous than yes daddy government is going to say something to you.

Daddy government isn't going to come into your house though and tell you you can't have a beer,or a ding dong

If you're on welfare, I certainly would like to demand it, and not just b/c of STDs.

If you could prove to me that ALL children born out of wedlock were worse off than children born in marriages, I'd consider it, but you can't.

Which is why, for example I am okay with allowing gays to adopt. You can't PROVE that children of gays do worse than children of straights as a rule.

Are you fat? If so , I apologize for stepping on your toes and ask that you please don't respond by stepping on, and subsequently smashing, my toes.

Ailing 425 Pound Woman Dies After Being Refused Boarding From Three Airlines quote: are you one of those big government more regulation guys or are you a self-proclaimed conservative who is fine with personal freedom as long as others are only choosing from pre-approved options? Neither, I'm one of those guys who says if the government is going to make me subsidize the healthcare that others receive, than I should have a say so in the behavior of others. Basically my argument against legalizing drugs as well. If we change the rules to where you don't get healthcare service if you can't afford it and you pay according to your risk category, I'm fine with people doing whatever. Same way I feel about my children, as long as I am helping them, then I get a say in their behavior. And yes I'm saying these people are acting like children and should be treated as such.



Holy shite I don't think I've ever agreed with you until now.

Very well put

Actually I'm bored at work and just messing with you. We just have different opinion. I prefer less not more government regulation. Especially at the federal level. I hear people bitching about cost all the time and then want the government to regulate it, then they bitch about that cost, too.

I am. This is not news on here. I'm old, fat, and ugly and I don't think you're sorry at all.
ETA: I see cookies and ice cream in my future. But don't worry, I'll wash it all down with a diet Coke.
