Air India air hostess, 53, falls off plane at Mumbai airport, hospitalised

Air India flight attendant ‘seriously injured’ after falling off aircraft while closing door

A flight attendant fell out of an Air India plane while trying to close its door on Monday (Oct 15), the airline said, reportedly breaking her leg when she landed on the tarmac.

Earlier this week, an internal inquiry was set up by Air India Express after their Dubai-bound flight from Trichy, with 136 passengers on board, hit the Air Traffic Control (ATC) compound wall on 11 October at the Trichy Airport, and was subsequently diverted to Mumbai. The aircraft was parked in the apron area of the Mumbai airport. "Air India has constituted a sub-committee and is looking into all safety-related issues within the organization, including subsidiaries", said Union Minister Suresh Prabhu.

Flight AI864 was originally scheduled to depart Mumbai for Delhi at 7am, but took off later at 8.30am. "During pre-boarding, she went to open the L5 door of the Boeing 777 to allow the step ladder to align with the door".

The airline termed the incident as "unfortunate" and said that it was investigating into it.

Citing sources, a Times of India report said the woman's right leg had a fracture and she underwent a CT scan at the hospital.

The following shocker takes place just a few months after an Air India engineer got sucked into Air India's engine at the airport.

Air India says it has reported the crash to the aviation regulator and is "cooperating with the investigation".

The tragedy happened when the co-pilot mistook a signal from ground staff and started the engine.
