Head injury kills Delta mechanic at Minn. airport
MINNEAPOLIS — Authorities say a Delta Air Lines mechanic has died after an accident while working on a plane at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office has identified the mechanic as 47-year-old Jesse Paul Stygar, and says he died Tuesday morning of a head injury.
Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Pat Hogan says the mechanic was injured while working on the gear doors of an aircraft.
Hogan says there are no indications of foul play.
Airport police and the Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.
Delta spokesman Anthony Black says the accident did not prevent the St. Louis flight from leaving as scheduled at 7 a.m., although a substitute plane was used.
