An airport ground worker at Koltsovo Airport (SVX) in Yekaterinburg, Russia remains in a critical condition after being run over by an A320 aircraft operated by Ural Airlines.

The tragic incident occurred on May 19, 2024 when the A320, bound for Manas International Airport (FRU) in Bishkek, began taxiing prematurely.

Disturbing footage of the moment this happened was captured and uploaded to several social media platforms, including X (formerly Twitter).

The footage shows the airport worker, identified as Rail, aged 32, standing under the 77-ton A320. The plane can be seen taxiing while Rail is still underneath the aircraft. 

“While taxiing from the aircraft parking lot, the technician suffered a leg injury,” a spokesperson for Ural Airlines told The Sun. “An ambulance was called to the scene, and the circumstances are being clarified.”

The aircraft’s pilot was removed from the flight, and after a three and a half hour delay, the plane left for Bishkek.

According to The Sun, the pilot, who is yet to be identified, has been interrogated and was found to be in violation of safety rules that resulted in serious harm to health through negligence.

Meanwhile, the airport worker in question required emergency amputation surgery, and is still reported to be unconscious.
