Passenger Sues Airline Over Nose Gear Collapse

NEW YORK (AP) -

Southwest Airlines is facing its first lawsuit over a hard landing at LaGuardia Airport last month that injured 16 people.

Jonesville, S.C., resident Jacqueline Young was on the flight that made a nose-first landing at the airport on July 22. She says in a lawsuit filed in Queens on Friday that she suffered permanent injuries and is seeking compensation.
