Personal responsibility files: Delvonte Tisdale



16-year-old Devonte Tisdale didn't make a sound decision when he ran away from home and stowed away in the wheel well of a US Airways plane at the Charlotte airport. Tisdale died from either exposure or from falling from the well into the yard of a Milton home when the plane lowered its landing gear on approach to Boston. This is, his parents say, not their fault, but the fault of lax security at the airport, and they have a Florida lawyer, Christopher Chestnut, happy to pursue these claims.
