Pan Am Employee Shocked At Compensation

Almost 20 years after a bomb killed passengers on Pan American Flight 103, a former employee speaks on the compensation he received after he and 15,000 other workers sued the airline.

George Fields of Washington in Beaufort County worked as a director of cargo sales for Pan American Airways in New York for 31 years.

He says he subsequently lost his job after Pan American went out of business in 1991.

He and the thousands of other workers decided to sue for compensation after the Libyan government was held responsible for the bombing.

Fields says he is shocked by his final payout amount. After taxes, Fields received a final sum of $1747 dollars.
