It took them Ten Years to receive Justice for the Death of their Son
The family of a child in New York, who was killed in an MRI chamber, has settled its lawsuit for $2.9 million. Michael Colombini, who was six years old, was killed at the Westchester Medical Center when an oxygen tank flew into the chamber, drawn in by the MRI’s 10-ton chamber electromagnet. A staffer inadvertently carried the tank into the MRI room. That mistake resulted in the tragic death of the child. The family now feels they have received some justice even though it took nine years to get there. The New York State Health Department fined the hospital $22,000 over the incident.
