The accident occurred this Wednesday afternoon in the civil sector and the man is out of danger.
A mechanic suffered serious injuries, but his life is not at risk, when a plane from the Aerosistema 2000 company that he was fixing this Wednesday afternoon in a private hangar at the Morón airport rushed over his body.
The incident occurred when the aircraft’s front landing gear collapsed and fell on the humanity of the 57-year-old man who was checking a fault in one of the wheels. Two other workers who were by his side were unharmed.
From the company they reported that the mechanic was transferred in an ambulance to a health center in Morón, that he has “four fractured ribs” and that he is “out of danger.” Sources from the aeronautical sector, in return, specified that in the next few hours he will be transferred to the Fitz Roy Comprehensive Medical Center in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Villa Crespo and that he suffers from fractured ribs and one of his clavicles; and a compromised lung, which is why he had to be sedated.
The Ministry of Defense of the Nation specified that the accident occurred “in the civil sector of the airport.” The causes of the event are under investigation and sources close to the event indicated that it could be a “coordination failure” at work that caused the front end to fall on his humanity.
The company Aerosistema 2000 accumulates several accidents with aircraft of its property. In November 2020, the same plane was involved in an incident at the Mendoza airport when it suffered mechanical damage to the landing gear, in the right rear area. There were no injuries or serious damage on that occasion.
Earlier, in May of the same year, the tail of a private plane that was at the San Fernando International Airport exploded while an oxygen load was being carried out prior to takeoff.
