One man lost his whole family, now he wants justice

Paul Njoroge lost his wife, three children and mother-in-law when a Boeing 737 MAX crashed in Ethiopia in March.

He's testifying in Congress this week.

Rough cut (no reporter narration).

Before flying to Washington, Njoroge spent a desolate weekend packing away toys his children would never play with again.

The crash of the new Boeing 737 MAX model, six minutes after take-off, came months after the same model crashed in Indonesia.

Preliminary reports in both cases highlighted the role of an automated system that erroneously pointed the plane's nose down as pilots struggled to override it.

The two crashes killed 346 people.

He will testify in Congress at Wednesday's (July 17) hearing, along with Dana Schulze, acting director of the National Transportation Safety Board's Office of Aviation Safety, and officials from aviation workers' unions.

Boeing has not yet been called to testify.

In an emailed statement, Boeing said it deeply regretted the loss of lives and would work with communities, customers and the aviation industry to help the healing process.

"These incidents and the lives lost will continue to weigh heavily on our hearts and on our minds for years to come," it said.
