Keralite employee crushed to death at Chicago OHare Airport

Jijo George 

New York: A 36-year old Malayalalee, employed at the Chicago O'Hare airport, was crushed to death by airplane equipment.

Jijo George died after being crushed by a "aircraft drivable pushback apparatus" at a hanger.

He died of multiple injuries, according to autopsy results released on Monday by the Cook County medical examiner's office.

George is survived by his wife, who is 8-months pregnant, a young child and his parents. An online fundraiser has been organised to raise funds for George's family.

George had moved to Chicago from Pathanapuram, Kerala. Media reports said George's father Kunjumon and mother Mony are also staying with him in Chicago.

George was a maintenance mechanic for Envoy Air and was working at a building near the airport when he died.

Chicago police said they were called about 2 pm to the airport for a man unresponsive under the vehicle.

George was taken to Resurrection Medical Center, where he died at 3:50 pm, authorities said. The autopsy ruled his death an accident, a report in the Chicago Sun Times said.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death, and has up to six months to issue workplace safety citations.
