Airport Employee Courtney Edwards Was Warned Repeatedly After Being Sucked Into Plane Engine

Courtney Edwards was working for a subsidiary of American Airlines in Montgomery when she was killed

Officials from the federal government have disclosed that an airport worker who was killed in a fatal accident last month was given multiple warnings about the dangers that existed prior to the incident.

Courtney Edwards, a 34-year-old American Airlines crewmember, was sucked into the engine of a regional airliner at Montgomery Regional Airport on December 31.

According to the preliminary assessment, the aircraft landed at the airport carrying 63 passengers, and the pilots informed airport officials that after parking the aircraft, they would leave its engines running for a two-minute cool down time.

According to the findings of the investigation, the crew was informed not once, but twice, before the arrival of the plane that it should not be approached until the engines had been turned off. On board the aircraft, rotating beacons that lit up to indicate that the engines were still operating were a warning sign.

According to the safety guidelines for the American Eagle, ground crew members should stay at least 15 feet away from the engine until the blades have stopped whirling.

Despite this, Courtney went dangerously close to falling over when she got too close to the jet’s exhaust before another worker told her to back off.

Courtney, on the other hand, walked in front of one of the engines a few moments later, which resulted to her being yanked off her feet and into the working engine.

Almost immediately after that, the pilot noticed a warning light, and then the plane began violently shaking, which was immediately followed by the number one engine automatically shutting down.

Courtney is survived by her mother and 3 children. Nearly $100,000 has been raised to help with funeral expenses and child care since the accident.
