Second Boeing Whistleblower Dies in Two Months

A Boeing whistleblower has died due to a surprise infection, according to his family, just two months after another Boeing whistleblower died in an apparent suicide, The Seattle Times reports.

Joshua Dean, a former quality inspector for Spirit AeroSystems, a supplier for Boeing, died this week due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA, a type of staph infection that is resistant to antibiotics. His family described Dean as having a healthy lifestyle and said he was in good health until about two weeks ago, when he was hospitalized due to difficulty breathing.

While in the hospital, Dean was intubated and developed pneumonia, followed by MRSA. He was moved from Wichita, Kansas, to a hospital in Oklahoma City to receive treatment from an ECMO machine, which helps oxygenate blood once organs begin to fail, and he was put on dialysis.
