Believed To Be Member Of Catering Staff
There's no doubt flying can sometimes be a risky business... and
alas, the risks aren't limited to taking flight. A woman assisting
in restocking a Qantas airliner at Brisbane International Airport
was killed when she reportedly fell to the tarmac this weekend.
The Brisbane Times reports the unidentified woman, 63, fell
about 20 feet from a loading platform Sunday morning. Officials
believe she was a member of the ground crews restocking the Boeing
747 for a scheduled flight to Los Angeles, who fell when she tried
to load a catering cart onboard.
A spokesman for Queensland Ambulance said the victim died on
The incident delayed Qantas flights to the United States and
Auckland, New Zealand, according to a Brisbane Airport spokeswoman.
She added members of the ground cleaning and catering crews were
"totally distraught" at the news of the accident.
Foul play is not suspected, but investigators will examine a
variety of factors before releasing their final report on the
woman's death, authorities said.
