Skydiving Death Lawsuit

BROOKLYN, IA (AP) - A woman is suing a skydiving company and pilot following the death of her husband, who was sucked out of an airplane door and fell to his death.

Cindy Kidrowski, of Brooklyn, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Poweshiek County.

The suit follows the Aug. 16 death of 56-year-old Wayne Kidrowski, who was flying from Brooklyn to Grinnell as part of a plan to have work done on the aircraft.

Although he wasn't skydiving, Kidrowski was told to wear a parachute.

The parachute deployed during the flight. The wind caught the material and dragged Kidrowski out of the plane.

The suit names Skydive Iowa, company owner Bruce Kennedy and pilot Andrew Arthur as plaintiffs.

Kennedy declined to comment and Arthur couldn't be reached.
