Mechanic killed after being sucked into Boeing plane’s engine

An aircraft mechanic was tragically killed after being sucked into the engine of a Boeing passenger jet.

Local engineer Abolfazl Amiri was carrying out routine maintenance work at Chabahar Konarak Airport in southern Iran when the accident occurred.

The plane’s right wing engine was operated for a test check with its cover flaps open.

According to Bild, Amiri realised he had left his tools near the engine and went to reach the turbine, only to be sucked in.

The engine quickly caught fire and emergency personnel were called, who recovered Amiri’s body from the engine.

Iranian aviation authorities have now launched an investigation into the incident.

In May, another person was killed by a running plane engine at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.

Passengers on board the KLM flight heard the horrific news of the deaths as they were preparing to take off for Denmark.

Last June, an airport worker was sucked into a plane’s engine and killed at San Antonio International Airport in Texas.

The death of 27-year-old David Renner was later ruled a suicide.

Airline employee Courtney Edwards, 34, also tragically died in December 2022 after being pulled into a jet engine.

The terrifying incident, which happened at Montgomery Regional Airport in Alabama on New Year’s Eve, “shook the entire plane.”
