American Airlines fined after ground worker loses leg

American Airlines has today been fined £70,000 after one of its workers had to have his leg amputated following an incident at Heathrow Airport.

On the evening of 11 November 2008 ground support worker Kulwant Bhara, 45, from Slough, was preparing an aircraft at Terminal 3 at London Heathrow Airport. A 70-tonne ‘pushback tug’, used to move aircraft from the departure gate, had finished manoeuvring a plane into position and was leaving the stand.
