NTSB report on Fatal Airport Accident Does Not Assign Blame

On December 31st, an American Airlines employee was tragically killed at an Alabama airport after being pulled into an engine. The NTSB's preliminary report revealed that the ground crew had held a safety briefing prior to the airplane arriving at the gate, and that the flight crew had elected to leave both engines running during the two-minute engine cool-down period. The NTSB is continuing to investigate the incident, and has not yet released a final report or the name of the employee.
