Grieving father slams Boeing's 'wrongful conduct' in Congress

Toronto resident Paul Njoroge, who lost five members of his family in the 737 MAX Ethiopian Air crash in March, says Congress must act to hold Boeing accountable.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

Boeing Co said on Wednesday it will dedicate half of a $100 million fund it created to address two deadly crashes of its 737 MAX planes to financial relief for the families of those killed, with compensation expert Ken Feinberg hired by the world's largest plane maker to oversee the distribution.

The announcement of Feinberg's hiring came minutes before the start of a U.S. House of Representatives hearing that featured dramatic testimony by Paul Njoroge, a father who lost three children, his wife and mother-in-law in a 737 MAX Ethiopian Air crash in March.

Feinberg told Reuters his team will "start immediately drafting a claims protocol for those eligible," with the first meeting with Chicago-based Boeing later this week in Washington.

The 737 MAX, Boeing's best-selling jet, was grounded globally in March following the Ethiopian Airlines crash after a similar Lion Air disaster in Indonesia in October.

The two crashes together killed 346 people.

Njoroge told a House subcommittee that he still has "nightmares about how (his children) must have clung to their mother crying.

... And there was nothing I could do to save them." Njoroge said Boeing has blamed "innocent pilots who had no knowledge and were given no information of the new and flawed MCAS system that could overpower pilots."
