Marine Jet Crash Victims Seek $56 Million

The family of four California residents who were killed when a Marine fighter jet crashed into their home in 2008 is seeking $56 million in compensation, the family’s lawyers said on Wednesday.

The family’s attorneys said at the end of a three-day trial that the government should pay $56 million, which includes $2.5 million for lost wages and economic losses.

Don Yoon testified that the deaths of his wife Youngmi, his mother-in-law Seokim Lee, and his 15-month-old and 7-week-old daughters, Grace and Rachel, devastated his life.

Yoon, along with Seokim’s husband and children, filed the wrongful death lawsuit, which wrapped up on Wednesday.
