Melbourne, July 14 (ANI): An American father has reportedly filed a case against Southwest Airlines, claiming his 14-year-old son was "aggressively" pursued by an older woman who offered the boy sex and drugs during a flight.
The man, from Chicago, has alleged that his son was forced to sit next to the woman on the flight from Chicago to Orlando in 2008.
The suit has claimed that the airline was negligent because flight attendants could not protect the boy, who was left so shaken he refused to take a return flight home alone.
"My client was a 14-year-old little boy when he was aggressively, sexually pursued by an older passenger who offered him drugs, who wanted sex from him," News.com.au quoted Jeffrey S. Deutschman Chicago attorney as telling the Sun-Times Media.
"He went to the bathroom four times, he asked to move and he was told to take his seat," he added.
The personal injury lawsuit, in which the family is seeking at least 50,000 dollar, claims the woman "was obviously intoxicated and/or under the influence of other drugs." (ANI)
