Boeing employee trapped under 787 leaves hospital
A Boeing employee who became trapped under a 787 jet and lost both his legs has been released from hospital after nearly two months.
Josh Divers spoke to reporters as he left a medical centre in Seattle last week. He says he remembers the "horrible pain" but now how the accident happened, the Associated Press reports.
The 30-year-old was run over by a 787 Dreamliner at the aircraft manufacturer's factory in Everett, Washington on February 3.
Emergency crews were called to rescue him from under the plane's landing gear and he was flown to hospital, where his legs were later amputated.
Divers remembers shouting updates like "my hips are trapped" to emergency services personnel when trapped at Paine Field.
He says it helped to have "a release of pain just by yelling".
He still has months of rehabilitation ahead of him, learning to walk with his prosthetic limbs.
Divers says Boeing has been fully supportive throughout the ordeal and he hopes to work for the company again one day.
