If they had to do it that way, why didn't the crew just shutdown the no.2 engine? The mechanic in question was very brave and extremely stupid for putting his life at risk in this way. He's lucky not to have been more seriously injured.

Never, ever, approach a running engine unless it's absolutely, unavoidably, necessary.
