No one's exactly sure why Igor Yelfimov was standing so close to
the engine of an Air Astana 737-700 at Moscow's Sheremetyevo-1
Airport Tuesday. Yelfimov won't be providing any answers. When the
crew of the Kazak airliner started up the engines, Yelfimov was
sucked into one of the turbines and instantly killed.
The Russian newspaper Gazeta reports officials quickly set up a
commission to investigate the grisly death. The aircraft was
reportedly grounded after Yelfimov was killed, its passengers
off-loaded and put up in local hotels for the night.
