Incidente di rampa a Fiumicino. Deceduto operatore


Ieri 11 novembre, mentre l’equipaggio era ancora presente a bordo dell’aeromobile A320 marche CS-TNL, durante il posizionamento del transloader sulla porta vano bagagli, il piano mobile dello stesso si sollevava urtando contro il portellone aperto e causando il decesso dell’operatore.
Danni alla struttura dell’aeromobile.
L’ANSV ha aperto un’inchiesta di sicurezza sull’evento


An accident occured yesterday at Roma Fiumicino causing the death of a rampie.

The TAP A320 had arrived and, according to other sources, passengers had already disembarked, when a bagage handler got sequeezed between the belt loader and the rear cargo door.
The poor guy died and the aircraft sustained severe damage.
Unofficial sources say he worked for Aviapartner.

Not clear yet what excactly happened. Whether the loader got mad and raised suddenly or any other malfunctioning.

This place is and remains dangerous to work in.
Equipment maintenance and stictly adhered to procedure are key in keeping safety.

R.I.P. to the poor guy and condolances to the near ones.

H.A.
