Phoenix To Pay Family $250K After Airport Death

Published October 21, 2009 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

The city of Phoenix has offered a $250,000 settlement to the three young children of a woman who strangled herself two years ago while in police custody at the Sky Harbor International Airport, reports KPHO news.

The city and police deny any wrongdoing on their part and offered the settlement because it would cost three times that amount if the case went to trial. The original amount sought by the children for negligence was $8 million.

The 45-year-old woman was drunk and unruly after missing her flight to Tucson where she was to attend a substance-abuse rehab clinic, according to news reports. The police arrested her and put her in a holding cell where she accidentally strangled herself while being chained to a bench.
