Recalled Takata Airbag Almost Takes Woman’s Ear Off

 Monday, February 9, 2015


It’s been two weeks since Sara Baker’s nightmare began, after she was involved in a crash in her 2002 Honda Accord after picking up her son from the sitter. The 34-year-old says when her airbag deployed, the flying shrapnel cut off more than half of her left ear. “All I remember is being rushed to the hospital because my ear was falling off,” said said. “It was hanging by a limb.” Baker still has problems using her injured ear. “I’m hoping my ear comes back normal. I can hear muffled.” Baker becomes the latest litigant in South Florida to file a lawsuit against Takata.
