Unnamed victim: On April 27, 2015, Sen Bill Nelson, ranking member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Technology reported that Takata has informed him of a sixth death caused by ruptured air bags, but neither Takata nor Nelson identified the victim.

Rich Newsome, an attorney representing seven victims of faulty Takata air bags, including Corey Burdick, a Florida man disfigured and blinded in one eye by shrapnel from an exploding air bag in May, called recent public outcry and government reactions that followed as a victory for consumer protection.

But, he added: “Today’s expanded recall is already too little, too late for people who died or injured and their families. Hopefully today’s news will push the agenda for recall reform to the forefront and result in legislation that will help NHTSA identify these kinds of defects before regular families with defective cars are needlessly harmed in the future.”
