You’ve seen this in movies, but now it happened in real life. An airplane mechanic was fixing one of the jet engines of a Boeing 737-500 aircraft and got sucked into it, turning himself into a slurp of red slush. The incident happened at the time while passengers were boarding the Continental Airlines flight 1515 from El Paso to Houston, Texas however it is not known whether anyone’s has actually seen it. There is no real view out of tarmacs and lots of ruckus inside the plane while it’s being boarded so no one actually has time to stare out of those small round windows.
The victim was working for one of Continental’s suppliers and truly wasn’t having a good day. Spinning pats of airplane jet engines are normally behind a protective grate but the one this mechanic went to look at had the grate removed because there was an issue with it earlier. Dude got too close and it sucked him right in spitting out bloody chunks of shredded body parts none of which resembled human shapes. Jet engines are mean man grinders.
How do you bury someone who went through a jet engine? How do you pick him up from the runway? I wonder if there is any surveillance video of the incident? Would be interesting to see if he put on a little fight for a second or two when suction took him over.
