INCIDENT | Ground Crew Lost His Life After Being Sucked Into An Engine

A ground crew member at San Antonio International Airport (SAT) died on Friday night after being "ingested" into the engine of a Delta A319, flight number DL1111, which has just landed. The accident occurred at around 11:00 PM on Friday, June 24, 2023. The ground crew member, who has not been identified, was working on a plane that was about to depart from SAT.


According to the FAA, the ground crew member was standing near the engine when he was sucked into it. The engine was still running at the time, and the ground crew member was killed instantly. The FAA is investigating the accident, but it is believed that the ground crew member may have been standing too close to the engine when it started up.


This accident is a reminder of the dangers of working on the tarmac of an airport. Ground crew members are exposed to a number of hazards, including jet engines, moving aircraft, and dangerous chemicals. It is important for ground crew members to be aware of these hazards and to take precautions to protect themselves. They should always wear safety gear, such as hard hats and safety glasses, and they should never stand too close to jet engines.

This accident is also a reminder of the importance of safety at airports. Airports are complex and busy environments, and there are a number of potential hazards that can lead to accidents. It is important for airports to have strict safety procedures in place and to train their employees on how to follow these procedures. They should also have systems in place to identify and mitigate hazards.
