by Nick Delgado
Guam - Guam Community College nursing student Jimmy Lomibao awaits the Guam International Airport Authority's board of directors' response to his government claim filed for numerous injuries and continuing medical treatment. He suffered a broken nose and bruises after he was allegedly assaulted during the airport's triennial disaster exercise.
He was a volunteer playing an agitated passenger. According to Lomibao's attorney, Doug Moylan, they provided documents and photographs to the airport's legal counsel. while disciplinary action was taken on the two airport employees accused of assaulting Lomibao. Moylan says his client hopes the airport will quickly take responsibility for this matter.
While no arrests have been made, the Guam Police Department is working with the Attorney General's Office to determine if there was proper use of force on the part of the airport. The airport has said Lomibao's injuries were unfortunate and the result of an aberration from the planned exercise.
