MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in federal court by the family of an Iowa nurse who died with two others in the January crash of a medical helicopter.
The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/19j9cqE) that the family of Shelly Lair-Langenbau has sued the air transport company that owned the helicopter and employed its pilot. The lawsuit was initially filed in Cerro Gordo County District Court, but was moved this week to federal court.
The family says Med-Trans Corp., a North Dakota-based corporation that operates its helicopter service out of Lewisville, Texas, is to blame for Lair-Langenbau's death. The suit says the pilot, Gene Grell, took off in unsafe weather conditions.
Lair-Langenbau, Grell and paramedic Russell Piehl died in the Jan. 2 crash in northern Iowa.
