A disabled Texas man is suing Aerovias de Mexico, a company that flies as Aeromexico, accusing its staff of breaking his leg.

Back in February, David Joya was flying from Leon, Mexico to Houston on Aerovias de Mexico, which was operating as Aeromexico.

Joya's itinerary required that he make a layover in Mexico City where he could catch a flight to the U.S.

According to local media the Ultimate Aldine, "Joya claimed an Aeromexico employee handled him 'aggressively' while transporting him from one aircraft to another, allegedly causing his leg to be broken."
