A worker was swallowed by the engine as it went in front of a parked plane at the airport. He was crushed to death. This terrible incident happened at the Montgomery Regional Airport in Alabama, USA.

According to a report by the New York Post, a plane from Dallas landed at Montgomery Airport on December 31 at around 3 pm local time. The aircraft was taken to park.
