Washington Examiner

Famed astronaut Neil Armstrong’s family reportedly received $6 million from an Ohio hospital following allegations that medical errors led to his August 2012 death.

The Mercy Health system, which defended the care provided to Armstrong, paid his family a $6 million settlement to avoid public litigation, according to documents obtained and authenticated by the New York Times. Armstrong died from “complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures” in Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 82.
