Horror as plane mechanic sucked into Boeing passenger jet | World | News

The mechanic, named Abolfazl Amiri, was reportedly doing routine maintenance when he attempted to grab a tool near the Varesh Airline aircraft and was sucked into its engine. 

According to reports, the engine was turned on for a test check, and a safety area was set up around the turbine as standard practice.

Amiri, who realised he had accidentally left a tool behind, died as a result of getting too close to the powerful machinery.

The engine caught fire and emergency responders were quickly called in. They recovered Amiri’s remains from the engine. 

The Iranian aviation authority has since launched an investigation into the incident.

The Boeing arrived in Tehran early in the morning at 7:15 am and landed safely in Chabahar Konarak airport.

The maintenance undertaken by Amirir was a routine check to be performed once all passengers and crew had disembarked. 

This is not the first plane incident caused by a plane engine this year, as another person was killed in May by a KLM plane preparing for takeoff in Denmark.

However, further investigation revealed that the employee may have committed suicide. 

Last year, another airport worker also died from being sucked into a plane engine at San Antonio International Airport in Texas.
