Investigation into fatal incident at Schiphol completed

An incident occurred on the apron at Schiphol Airport Wednesday afternoon in which a man fell into the spinning engine of an aircraft and died. The aircraft had just completed the pushback procedure and was about to cab to the runway.

The deceased man has been identified. The victim was working at the airport. Investigations revealed that he deliberately climbed into the engine. Thus, this is a case of suicide. Out of piety for the victim and next of kin, we are not making any further announcements.
