Person sucked into plane’s engine, killed at Amsterdam airport

One person was killed on Wednesday when they were sucked into the engine of a plane at Amsterdam’s main airport.

The victim – who has not been publicly identified – was swept into the engine of a KLM Cityhopper Embraer E190 departing from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, The Sun reported.

The plane bound for BIllund, Denmark, was scheduled to take off at 2:25 p.m. local time, according to FlightAware.

It was not immediately clear whether the victim was a passenger or a member of the crew.

“Today there was a horrific incident where a person ended up in an aircraft engine,” the airport said in a statement to The Post.

“Our thoughts are with the loved ones and we are caring for the passengers and colleagues who witnessed this. The Royal Military Police are currently investigating,” the update said.

Passengers and crew who were on board the flight at the time of the incident were disembarked and provided with assistance, authorities have confirmed.

KLM did not immediately respond to the Post’s request for additional comment on the incident.

In January 2023, a ground handler at Montgomery Regional Airport was fatally sucked into the engine of a plane after being repeatedly warned to keep her distance.

A few months later, in July, another airport employee was sucked into a jet engine at San Antonio International Airport.
