At Pune airport on Thursday, a security guard employed by AIX Connect, previously Air Asia, lost his life after collapsing as he attempted to board a plane through the back door.
The airline announced that an investigation had been opened and that it was in touch with the family of the deceased employee to offer support.
Pune to Delhi flight
The event took place at 6:20 a.m., and from Pune to Delhi, flight I5-767 was getting ready to take off from Pune airport. Vivin Anthony Dominic, a 34-year-old native of Lohegaon in Pune, was recognized as an airline employee.
According to the most basic information that is currently available, the deceased employee was standing on the ladder that was attached to the airplane’s rear side door.
We’ve been told that the staff member fell as the ladder was being taken down and suffered severe injuries. Senior Inspector Vilas Sonde of the Vimantal police station claimed that after being transferred to a hospital, the man passed away.
In the interim, the police have opened an accidental death investigation to determine what exactly happened to cause his death. “An offense will be registered in accordance with the complaint if our investigation reveals negligence on the part of any person or organization. We will gather testimony from witnesses and follow up on numerous leads,” Sonde said.
Airline Employee dies at Pune Airport
An AIX Connect official issued the following statement: “We regret to inform all parties that one of our personnel lost their life while carrying out work-related responsibilities at the Pune Airport. Right now, giving his family all the support they require is our priority.
“An extensive inquiry will be conducted. To identify the accident’s cause and make sure that any gaps are filled, we are cooperating with the authorities. The statement said, “Our top concern in all of our operations is the health and safety of our visitors and workers.
All passengers board from an aerobridge that is affixed to the aircraft’s front door. The service employees who clean and do other things typically use a step ladder at the back. As the jet was preparing to take off and the security agent was exiting it, the event likely happened when he used the ladder to enter the aircraft from the back and checked to see if the cleaning crew had boarded.
The airline is conducting an investigation, said Santosh Dhoke, director of the Pune Airport, and the authorities won’t know more until the report is turned in.
According to aviation expert Dhairyashil Vandekar, the incident highlights the necessity to modernize the medical processes used at airports.
“To assure the availability of critical care and EMS for both passengers and airport personnel, the medical protocol now used at busy airports in India needs to be rapidly changed and upgraded. Our airport medical facilities need to be well-equipped with a focus on ‘golden hour’ response and care, he said.
