Discovery Sued -- Again -- Over Fatal Helicopter Crash Deadline
Discovery Communications is facing another lawsuit related to a fatal helicopter crash in February 2013, reports Deadline.com.
The piece reports: “Donald Rydstrom, the father of a cameraman killed along with two others while filming a military-themed Discovery Channel show ... filed a complaint [Thursday] in L.A. Superior Court against its parent company seeking ‘general damages in a sum in excess of the jurisdictional limits of this Court, which will be stated according to proof.’”
Darren Rydstrom, cast member Michael Donatelli and pilot David Gibbs died when their helicopter crashed into an open field, the story notes. Rydstrom’s father is claiming the loss of love, companionship and support, on top of “other benefits and assistance of Descendant,” the piece adds.
The lawsuit is the third to come out of the crash, and the second citing Discovery, the article notes.
