Woman Left On Plane After Falling Asleep Is Now Suing

You can do this? Hell people are suing for everything now. Yes, they should had woken her up, I get that, but to sue over it?

Via Yahoo!/AP:

A woman from Ferndale, Mich. is suing United Airlines after she was left alone on a plane for hours after it had landed.

Ginger McGuire was aboard a United Express flight from Washington, DC to Philadelphia. She says she fell asleep during the flight. It landed shortly after midnight Tuesday but no one woke her up until a cleaning crew found her four hours later.

United Airlines says they are working with a regional partner carrier to determine why the plane wasn't cleared upon landing.

McGuire told reporters, "I fell asleep on the plane and next thing you know I wake up, it's 4:00 in the morning. Nobody's on the plane. Nothing."

McGuire has hired Geoffrey Fieger who is filing a lawsuit for false imprisonment, emotional distress and negligence.

Something about this doesn't seem right. I've fallen asleep in flights before - but how can you stay asleep when the plan lands and you have over a hundred people marching through the aisles with their hand bags.
