A tragic accident at San Antonio airport claimed the life of an employee Friday night after the victim was sucked into a running jet engine.
The ground worker was killed just before 10:30 p.m. when they were “ingested” into the engine of a Delta flight that had just arrived from Los Angeles.
“Delta Flight 1111 was taxying to the gate. With one engine on at that time, and a worker was ingested into that engine at 10:25 p.m.,” the NTSB said in a statement.
“The NTSB has been in contact with Delta. They are in the information-gathering process at this point.”
The victim was reportedly employed by Unifi Aviation to provide ground-handling services.
“Unifi Aviation is deeply saddened by the loss of our employee at San Antonio International Airport during a tragic incident in the late hours of Friday, June 23, 2023,” the company stated.
“Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased, and we remain focused on supporting our employees on the ground and ensuring they are being taken care of during this time.”
