Orlando-area PGA pro suing U.S. Airways over spilled hot water


SHARE THIS STORY

An Orlando-area PGA professional is suing U.S. Airways, seeking $400,000 in damages after a flight attendant spilled scalding hot water on him during a flight.

David Huebsch is head golf professional at Tuscawilla Country Club in Winter Springs, Fla. He was flying home on Aug. 15, 2014, to Orlando from Portland, Ore., when, an hour into his flight, the incident occurred. Huebsch claims the resulting burns caused physical and psychological damage, preventing him from doing his job and "enjoying life." He accuses the airliner of negligence and of failing to provide a safe traveling experience.

The 42-year-old filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Portland on Thursday.
