An emergency slide that detached from a Boeing 767 plane on Friday washed up on the beach near the New York home of a lawyer whose law firm has sued the aerospace company.

New York lawyer Jake Bissell-Linsk told the New York Post that he saw the slide when he looked out his window Sunday. Bissell-Linsk’s home is 6 miles away from the JFK International Airport, where a Delta plane took off before the slide detached.

Above the Law and HuffPost noted the New York Post story, while the Rockaway Times posted photos of the washed-up slide on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Our case is all about safety issues at Boeing, and this slide is literally right in front of my house,” Bissell-Linsk told the New York Post.

Bissell-Linsk is a partner with Labaton Keller Sucharow, which filed a securities class action lawsuit alleging that Boeing failed to disclose to shareholders that it prioritized profits over safety.

“We haven’t decided if the slide is relevant to our case,” Bissell-Linsk told the New York Post.
