The accident apparently took place when 42 year old Law Suk Leh was driving her Honda City, a 2003 model in Borneo Island in Malaysia when another car struck her.
Leh was travelling at just 20 mph. The airbag deployed at impact and a metal shrapnel sliced through her neck and killed her while on the way to the hospital in the ambulance. The baby she was carrying was delivered after she passed away, but also died three days later.
Law Ngee Chiong, the woman's father is now suing the airbag maker and Honda. The suit was filed in the United States since the inflator that caused the death was made in LaGrange, GA.
Leh's case is one among six fatality cases caused by faulty airbags made by Takata. The faulty airbag has made carmakers recall 24 million cars around the world.
