Listen: Aer Lingus Tells Family Of Courier Who Died At Warehouse That It Deeply Regrets What Happened.

: 03/20/2017 - 16:27

Aer Lingus has told the family of a courier driver who died in one of its warehouses three years ago that it deeply regrets what happened.

The airline was fined € 250,000 for failing to implement safety procedures in relation to a loading bay used by drivers after hours.

John Murray, a 55-year-old married father-of two from Skerries in Dublin, died when he fell from the platform after picking up some packages.

The court heard Aer Lingus had identified it as a risk seven years beforehand.

Speaking outside afterwards, Mr. Murray's wife Angela said their apology doesn't make much difference:
