Airline carriers announce, “Please don’t feed the planes,” after second worker ingestion in less than five months

[Previously: “Darwin-award-winning, mother of three sucked into plane engine was warned to stay back”; and

“It happened again! A ground crew member walked too close to a taxiing airliner, and got ‘ingested.’”]

blacks are a rare delicacy for airplanes to eat. This is the second time it’s happened—a plane ate a person—the first was a fat black—a mere five months ago. This incident, we don’t know, but I will assume word is getting around and other planes will want their own taste of dark meat. Soon, pilots won’t be able to control their airborne planes, when flying over detroit, atlanta, new orleans, baltimore or chicago—they will dip down to snatch a black for an inflight snack—right off the street.

A disproportionate thing, but “a plane’s gotta do what a plane’s gotta do.”

And “a full plane is a happy plane.”

Seems safe to say the following headline and story are unique in human history and will remain so.

Teen dies during heatwave hike, stepfather fatally crashes seeking help at Big Bend National Park

"A 14-year-old boy died while hiking in extreme heat at Big Bend National Park. His stepfather died after crashing his vehicle while trying to get help, according to a news release by National Park Service."

The stepson is 14, his brother is 21, the stepfather is (only) 31.

(CNN)A ground worker who was “ingested” into a plane’s engine at San Antonio International Airport Friday died by suicide, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The cause of death is listed as blunt and sharp force injuries. The manner of death is listed as suicide, an office assistant for the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office told CNN in a phone call.

Delta Flight 1111 had arrived at San Antonio from Los Angeles Friday and was taxiing to a gate using one engine “when a worker was ingested into that engine at about 10:25 p.m.,” the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement to CNN on Sunday evening.

The safety board is continuing to gather information about what happened, it said. San Antonio International is working with authorities on the investigation, a spokesperson said.
