Person Sucked Into Plane’s Engine, Killed at Airport

A person was killed Wednesday when they were sucked into the engine of an airplane at Amsterdam’s main airport.

The victim – who has not been identified publicly – was drawn into the engine of a departing KLM Cityhopper Embraer E190 at the Amsterdam Schiphol airport, The Sun reported.

The plane bound for BIllund, Denmark, was set to takeoff at 2:25 p.m. local time, according to FlightAware.

It was not immediately clear if the victim was a passenger or a crew member.

“Today there was a horrible incident where a person ended up in an airplane engine,” the airport said in a statement to The Post.

“Our thoughts go out to the relatives and we care for the passengers and colleagues who witnessed this. The Royal Military Police is currently conducting an investigation,” the update read.

The passengers and crew who were onboard the flight at the time of the incident were disembarked and receiving assistance, the authorities confirmed.

In January 2023, a ground handling agent at Montgomery Regional Airport was fatally sucked into the engine of a plane after she was repeatedly warned to keep her distance.

A few months later, in July, another airport worker was sucked into a jet engine at San Antonio International Airport.

    People that work a flight-line are told most every day to be safe and respect the running jet engines. I spent 21 years in the air force and never saw or even heard of a person getting sucked in an engine. Never saw or heard of ANYTHING getting sucked into the engine inlet because we were taught to respect the areas around the engine inlet, even at idle where one can easily get sucked in. This person either committed suicide or was just plain stupid.

    Hell of a way to go.
