EgyptAir families sue Apple over Flight 804 crash


The families of a few of those killed in an EgyptAir plane crash caused by an on-board fired have documented a claim against Apple, asserting that the fire began when one of its gadgets overheated.

EgyptAir Flight 804 collided with the Mediterranean Sea on 19 May 2016, murdering each of the 66 individuals on board. No mayday call was gotten, yet programmed information transmissions from the plane demonstrated that smoke had been distinguished in both the front lavatory and the avionics bay underneath the cockpit.

Wreckage therefore recuperated affirmed the smoke readings and uncovered huge fire harm in the front segment of the plane. No conclusive reason for the fire has been distinguished. Hypothesis has included explosives, a fire in the avionics bay and a cockpit fire began in the region where one of the pilots put away his iPad small and iPhone 6S.

The flight took off from Paris, and one French agent said there was a “troubling parallel” between the area of the gadgets previously take-off and the evident wellspring of the fire. Notwithstanding, the security editorial manager of Flight International magazine told the Telegraph this was an impossible reason.

TMZ says that it has seen records recorded by legal advisors speaking to groups of a few of the reports, charging that this last hypothesis was the reason for the crash, and that there is sufficient proof to consider Apple mindful.

Apple has issued an announcement to a few locales denying this.


We haven’t been contacted by GTA or any authority investigating this tragic event. We have not seen the report but we understand there is no evidence to link this event to Apple products. If investigators have questions for us, we would of course assist in any way we can. We rigorously test our products to ensure they meet or exceed international safety standards.


With agents saying that it isn’t conceivable to make any determinations about the reason for the crash, this might be an instance of legal advisors pursuing the most profound pockets.
