According to the report, “Charles E. Giebel II was in his plane seat at Denver International Airport awaiting a flight to Newark, New Jersey on March 22, 2017, when an ‘infirm’ passenger trying to load a suitcase in an overhead bin dropped it on Giebel’s head, the lawsuit said.”

Timothy Fields, the Colorado Springs attorney that filed the lawsuit, claims flight attendants should have noticed the passenger was struggling with his suitcase and should have helped. 

The Denver Post reported that Giebel is seeking an unspecified award from Southwest.
