Saturday, February 04, 2012

A man has been hospitalized with serious leg injuries after being trapped under the tires of a Boeing 787 jetliner.

Authorities said it happened at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. on Friday night. A Japan Airlines plane was being towed when a member of a Boeing ground crew was run over.

The man was walking along with the plane placing blocks under the wheels when he became trapped. He remained conscious and alert as he was rescued and airlifted to a hospital.

Boeing says it will investigate and make any necessary changes to make sure this doesn't happen again.
