If you thought the sad, sad story of the 425-pound Bronx woman who died in Hungary after being kicked off three separate flights was going to end with her funeral, you've obviously never met a lawyer. As was hinted at yesterday, it appears Janos Soltesz, the late Vilma Soltesz widower, is now looking to sue the three airlines who kept his wife in Europe for a total of $6 million.

"He wants to know why his wife had to die because the airlines simply didn’t want to be inconvenienced," the Staten Island Ferry security guard's lawyer told the Post.

As you'll recall, the Solteszes went to their native Hungary for their annual vacation and planned to return in mid-October. But after they'd flown to Hungary the couple found that no airlines would fly them home—despite their advance warnings and the fact they'd bought multiple tickets for Vilma (who suffered from a combination of diabetes and kidney disease that had left her without a leg and filled with water weight).

It appears that Soltesz's lawyer is arguing this is a case of discrimination. “Very rarely do you have discrimination causing much more than humiliation and psychological damages, but in this instance, the discriminatory actions of the airlines led to something much more serious—Vilma’s death,” the attorney said.

All three airlines (Delta, KLM and Lufthansa), for their part, say they made good faith efforts to board Vilma but were in the end unable to accomodate her. "Of course nobody said she was too fat to fly home," a Lufthansa spokesman told Business Insider. However after lifting Vilma up to the level of the plane with a lift "there was not the slightest idea how to move her out of the wheelchair without hurting her."
