The family of the woman who died during an American Airlines flight and was allegedly dragged down the aisle partially clothed has set up a fundraiser to help cover costs of her funeral expenses.
On June 12, Theresa Hines fell unresponsive in the bathroom of a flight. She died shortly after she was discovered. However according to her son, the autopsy was “inconclusive.”
“My family wasn't prepared to lose her so soon or have to make arrangements. Unfortunately her autopsy results were returned as inconclusive so we are unable to utilize her life insurance policy at this time...” wrote Alex McQuirter on the GoFundMe page.
Theresa, who worked as a customer support supervisor and lived in Carrollton, Texas, was remembered by her family as being an incredible person who lit up any room she was in.
“Theresa 'Queen T' Hines was an amazing mother, daughter, wife, sister, and friend. She was a true friend to all. Theresa threw amazing parties/gatherings that brought everyone together. She kept everyone smiling with her infectious smile and quick wit. Theresa had the world's biggest heart! She always welcomed everyone into her home with open arms. Always thinking of others. A gracious hostess. She was and is loved by so many. She was an avid sports fan, and made friends everywhere she went. True lasting friendships not just aquaintances. She had a generous sweet soul and spirit. We will forever love and miss her,” wrote McQuirter.
The family has already raised $16,700 of their $19K goal. If you’d like to contribute to the fundraiser, click here.
