did the bird sustain any injuries ???
NEWS FLASH...... Dateline, Sydney.
When UA870 refused to yeild right of way to the bird, the Boeing B-747-400 struck and killed the poor victum. The bird's family has hired the top law firm in the US and filed a wrongful death suit against UAL for $350B US. Additionally, the ACLU has also filed suit against UAL for "wreckless acceleration" on the runway in Sydney, causing the death of a local Australian citizen. The ACLU sited the death as a violation of the basic right to life. Meanwhile, the families suit states the bird killed was only flying across the runway to get food for his sick mate, who was at their nest, sitting on their still unborn eggs.
The US based Serrira Club has called for a national day of moarning in both the US and Asutralia. US Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA
) has called for a US Senate Hearing into the death and the "total disreguard of life" by UAL, since UAL has not accepted responsibility for the accident, or offered compensation. Senator Kennedy also introduced a bill into the US Senate granting the deceased bird, and his extended family US citizenship.
A UAL spokesman said the company does not comment on law suits against the company.
