Airport worker killed after being ‘ingested into engine’ of plane

A ground worker at a regional airport in Alabama was killed Saturday by being sucked into the engine of a parked plane.

The plane, an Embraer 170, was parked at the gate with its engine running after arriving from Dallas. The flight was operated by Envoy Air, a subsidiary of American Airlines. The deceased was an employee of Piedmont Airlines, a regional airline also owned by American Airlines.

Montgomery Regional Airport said in its own statement that it was “saddened to learn of the tragic loss of a team member.”

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.
