"While the absolute cause of death may never be fully determined, Honda now considers this to be the 11th confirmed fatality in its vehicles related to Takata airbag inflator ruptures in the United States". A medical examiner ruled his death accidental due to head trauma, according to a Hialeah police report.

Honda is again urging consumers who own a recalled vehicles to contact the company and get a replacement immediately.

In other words, the chemical can break down over time, becoming less effective in preventing violent airbag inflator ruptures that have been linked to at least 12 deaths in the U.S. It's worth noting that The Associated Press cites Honda spokesperson Chris Martin, who said "The rupture most likely contributed to his death".

A company spokesman said the man had taken apart the car's center console, although it's not exactly clear what he was working on. An autopsy found that the cause of death were the metal and plastic fragments that cut her neck from the ruptured air bag.

Chaman SSP martyred in attack on convoy
SSP Chaman Sajid Khan Mohmand has been martyred in a suicide blast that allegedly targetted his vehicle on Bogra Road in Chaman. Police and law enforcement agencies have surrounded the area to trace the miscreants involved in the terrorist attack.

Honda says its service procedures recommend disconnecting the battery when working on the air bag system.

A Florida man's attempt to fix a 2001 Honda Accord containing a recalled Takata airbag led to his death, according to Honda and the Associated Press.

While the incident doesn't seem to have occurred in a professional fix setting, it should be a stark reminder for all shops: Follow OEM guidelines not just to protect the vehicle owner, but the technician as well. Of the approximately 29 million cars affected by the Takata recall, some with the most risky types of inflators are said to be Hondas and Acuras from the early 2000s, including the 2001-2002 Accord and Civic.

Honda urged owners who have received recall notices to get repairs made as soon as possible, especially those with the most risky type of inflator. Takata inflators can explode with too much force when exposed to prolonged airborne moisture and hot-and-cold temperature cycles.

Aaron Judge surpasses Joe DiMaggio's Yankees single-season rookie home run record
Judge is hitting.331 with 65 RBIs and 104 strikeouts. "That's a pretty special name he passed", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. It took DiMaggio 128 games to reach 29 homers in his rookie season, but Judge eclipsed it in his 82nd game this year.

The airbags on the following Hondas models have up to a 50% chance of exploding in a crash: 2001 and 2002 Accord and Civic, the 2002 CR-V and Odyssey, the 2002 and 2003 Acura 3.2 TL, the 2003 Acura 3.2 CL and the 2003 Pilot.

The recall, which comes in addition to the 42 million inflators Takata previously recalled, covers airbag inflators made from 2005 to 2012 and used in certain Nissan, Mazda, and Ford vehicles. Another five deaths were disclosed globally.

Facing billions of dollars in losses and court settlements, Takata declared bankruptcy last month.
