Mike and AMS


Recommended Posts

Hadn't heard anything about it.  Even googling it it took a bit to find out the story.  Needless to say... don't think the whole affair is getting a lot of press over here.

For those wondering... apparently a sailor is serving a 3-year sentence for killing a couple after falling asleep at the wheel in Japan.  Lee is apparently adamant the sailor suffered from AMS (which I guess would mean less or no prison time?).

AHH. The USN Officer, Lt Alkonis, suffered AMS due to the drive up Mt Fuji and then back down which is when he had the accident that killed the elderly mother and her son? The contention being that the AMS is a medical event and not an issue of negligence while driving.
